Setting up ssl offloading with MWS?


Has anyone attempted to setup ssl off loading with MWS?
I’m looking to setup a load balanced ip on an F5 load balancer and have the ip configured to use SSL so that I can secure the login pages to the MWS but still have the MWS’s configured to use HTTP.

I’m able to reach the login screen through the new ip, but when I attemtp to login it appears the login screen attempts to do a redirect to the same host and port using HTTP but fails.

If I click the back button in my browser I am authenticated against the MWS and I can navigate from there.

I’m curious if anyone else has tried implementing in this manner?
