Transparent (WCCP) setup SSL certificate errors



A lot of users are getting the normal Certificate error screen in IE saying there is a problem with the certificate and they have to click continue (not recommended).


All of these users have the web gateway certificate in their IE browsers already. This was pushed by GPO.


What I believe is the problem is that when they are first trying to connect to an HTTPS site from a desktop shortcut, sometimes the gateway goes to an IP address and not the URL. An example from my access log file would be: instead of I think this makes IE throw a certificate error because it is not going to the URL that matches the certificate. 


Why is it doing this for HTTPS sites?  For HTTP sites, I never see it go to IP addresses in my access log files.
