If you create a connection to a website using the Connection Wizard with a URL that looks like http://www.mysite.com and you browse to secure page like https://mysite.com/ you’ll notice you’ve lost the connection to the site. This issue is easily resolved by adding an alias for https://mysite.com in the Web Address tab while Administering the site.

- Administer the site
