I'm afraid I can't answer that one, as you're using IIS and I'm Unices

FWIW, in situations where the port-80 service does *nothing but* hand
out redirects to port 443, I typically let the full-blown webserver
handle the HTTPS (whether natively or behind an SSL wrapper) and use a
boilerplate PERL script (alas, not readily usable on Windows) for the
redirecting. I've seen too many kinds of webserver doing redirections to
autodetermined URLs that happen to miss some vital part of the
originally requested URL, including some that *cause* the browser to
drop from HTTPS back to HTTP in the first place. :-S
