monitor website where http redirecting to https



Monitoring a website using PRTG, infrastructure changes means it is now reached via a loadbalancer that automatically rewrites the http request so http://www.domainname.com becomes https://domainname.com Works fine from a browser but the PRTG monitor doesn't seem able to follow the rewrite and shows the site as down. Suggestions please on what to change to fix it, I'm using HTTP advanced.

http https prtg
