Looking to move my DNN site behind a BIG IP F5 device. Essentially this means terminating any incoming SSL connections on the BIG IP device and passing unencrypted traffic from the device to the DNN site.

If anyone has had any experiences with this can you please share your experience in doing so and please highlight the configuration or any changes if any that needs to be made to the DNN site or the F5 device.

Many thanks

SSL-offloading is supported in the professional editions of DNN i.e. they allow you to indicate what header value to detect to see if HTTP traffic has been forwarded from an original HTTPS request that terminated at an upstream provider.

This post is old; but looking for answer.
I'm running DNN community edition and having SSL offloading issue where its goes infinite redirection loop.

Can we identify HTTP header in community edition?
Is there any other way to resolve this issue?
