I compiled PHP 4.2.0-dev with SSL support and Apache 1.3.24 without SSL


How do I prevent the redirect.php page from detecting the port number?

My first roadblock is that IMP is currently assuming the port it should
redirect requests to is the "private" port instead of the "public" port.

The symptoms:

Using Internet Explorer 5.0 or Netscape 4.79 I request:
 and twenty seconds later the error message:
could not open the site https://webmail.tulane.edu:81/horde/imp/redirect.php

OR, I request the login page, and give my valid credentials, then time out
with a cannot find server / DNS error.

I want the entire session to be SSL ( hence the SSL accelerator ) and I have
the variable $conf['use_ssl'] = 1;
 set in the horde/config/horde.php file.

How do I prevent the redirect.php page from detecting the port number?

Thanks in advance.
