If you select the Require SSL option for a virtual directory, the Index Server does not index that virtual directory.
Index Server does not index a virtual directory if either the directory is an exclusive executable directory or you select the Require SSL check box.
Upgrade to Index Server version 2.0 or later.
Use secure https:// links to the virtual directories that you would like indexed, but do not select the Require SSL check box.
If the first workaround is not acceptable, you can write an ISAPI filter that redirects all non-secure requests to https:// instead of http://
NOTE: When you install a filter that redirects all non-SSL connections to SSL connections, it forces all pages on the site to be served securely. As an alternative, you can include logic in your filter that checks to see if a specified virtual directory is requested and then redirects to a secure connection.
