(HTTPS) Download functionality fails in IE

Hello,

The download function in alfresco breaks down when we force the users to go thru "HTTPS" security constraint.

Example : Document (*.pdf) can open or download in Firefox 3.0 allright.

When I open the same http site with the same user via IE 6 & 7 get an error message "Internet Explorer could not open the internet site"

This happens with both standard http (redirected to https) and with the direct "https" .

The modified code in "web.xml" is defined below:


   
<security-constraint>
        <web-resource-collection>
            <web-resource-name>HTTPSOnly</web-resource-name>
            <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
        </web-resource-collection>
        <user-data-constraint>
            <transport-guarantee>CONFIDENTIAL</transport-guarantee>
        </user-data-constraint>
    </security-constraint>
