Please provide the following information

qBittorrent version and Operating System

4.1.6 Windows

If on linux, libtorrent and Qt version

(type here)

What is the problem

Qbittorrent WEBGUI will not proxy correctly if the request originates from HTTPS, seems to be fine from HTTP

What is the expected behavior

Should have the full GUI and tables

Steps to reproduce

Using this web.config that was taken from this github (can't remember the ticket #)
When using a browser on the IIS 7.5 host using the 'http://localhost/qbweb/' it will display correctly. However using either the domain name or localhost with 'https' it will be missing all the graphics and tables etc....

Okay after some more testing I have finally figured what the issue is, but I am not sure how to fix it since I have very little knowledge about IIS reverse proxy configuration file

when you type in the address... it translates the output and missing a '/' between 'qbweb' & '#Start'

if you type in with the backslash already there then everything is perfect.

now this is what I tried to add into the web.config, but it didn't work, it still does the

> <rule name="qBittorrent Reverse Proxy" enabled="true" patternSyntax="ECMAScript" >stopProcessing="true">
>                    <match url="(.*)/" />   
>                    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://win81-ent-vm03:8085/{R:1}" />
>                    <serverVariables>

<match url="(.*)/" /> thinking this would add the extra '/' but with that I can't even access the website.

Anyone here that is an expert on the web.config can chime in that would be great!
