Answers

  • Hello,

     HTTP and HTTPS are not mutually exclusive. Add CRM without HTTPS, then add a certificate and enable https. See the picture. same site, one on http and another window on https.

  • Hello,

    Http binding is default, but you need to specifically do https binding to CRM website, if you have https you can also access it using Http as displayed in above screens

  • It is possible to configure the CRM web site in IIS with multiple bindings, which allow a browser client to access via HTTP or HTTPS, and through different URLs.

    However, CRM will only store one Url for each web service (as per the Deployment Manager settings). These are used to respond to requests to the CrmDiscoveryService, of which there are 2 main uses:

    • The Crm Outlook client will get the Url from the CrmDiscoveryService, so all Outlook clients will use the same binding
    • Custom code (typically not deployed in CRM) may (or may not) use the CrmDiscoveryService

  • You would be much better served redirecting all HTTP requests to HTTPS requests in IIS.  See section 4 in this link: http://ruslany.net/2009/04/10-url-rewriting-tips-and-tricks/
