Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a website on Internet Information Services (IIS) that is configured to be HTTPS only.
  • You browse to an aspx page on the site, such as http://mysite/mypage.aspx. This aspx page contains a relative reference to an XSL file. For example, the reference is as follows:
    ..\repro.xsl
  • IIS loads a 403.4 error page because the site is HTTPS only.
  • The 403.4 error page redirects to the same website, but the website uses https.
  • Mypage.aspx loads, and this should load the "..\repro.xsl" relative reference.
In this scenario, as mypage.aspx is being loaded, you receive the following error message:
This page is accessing information that is not under its control. This poses a security risk. Do you want to continue?
