We have a Web Application Firewall that turns http-Requests to https-Requests. The certificate is installed on the WAF. The communication protocol between the WAF and the Web Site is http (port 80). This works so far, except when I open a popup (which is technically spoken an IFrame). When I check the network protocol in the browser (developer tools), I find an HTTP-Request to the IFrame (e.g. /Start/ctl/Edit/mid/409?popUp=true or /Login?returnurl=/&popUp=true), which ends in an empty popup (and in IE in the warning about mixed content). When I choose to allow, I can re-open the popup once and continue working, but the next request is the same as before.

The question is: Do I have to change some site or host settings, or is this a problem of the WAF?

Happy DNNing!
