I have a web farm setup behind a series of Load Balancers. My Load Balancers provide the SSL handling (hardware SSL is much faster than IIS). So my web servers actually service all request on port 80. This is a problem since my traffic is coming in to the load balancers on port 443.

The problem is from the settings var pwServer = 'http://myserver'. I need a way to override that setting so that it is making the request on https instead of http, without loosing my farm.

Thanks

This would also be solved by the control not using an explicit url.

I am running my applications on a web farm and our SSL certs are installed on the load balancers not the web servers them selves. We are now required to remove port 80 access to our users (via the load balancers), but the request between the load balancers and the servers will still be port 80.

This issue, which was pointed out several times in 2006 and never resolved, has come to a head again. I've tried to change the pwServer variable manually in the page by adding an additional script js call after the rendered version from the Dart controls, and can confirm that the variable has changed. However, its still not working. Is it set somewhere else in one of the other javascript files that gets loaded as a resource, or is there some web.config change I can do to override this behavior?

This is an urgent issue as we are hitting PCI compliance issues.
