[users@httpd] Apache 2.4.x - Restriction of HTTPS Enforcement to external clients



I have a need to restrict https enforcement on my Apache installation to only external clients.


The server hosting the Apache instance is accessible over the internet via a domain http://www.domainname.net while the same server is accessed internally/locally (LAN) by application servers via http://172.16.10.x/


Whenever https is enforced, the internal applications become unstable because they have not been programmed to make https calls and cannot deal with the https redirection done by Apache. However, eternal clients accessing the server via the internet using the domain name are fine.


Find below the details of the Apache instance and current configuration driving https enforcement:


Server version: Apache/2.4.23 (Unix)


RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on

# This checks to make sure the connection is not already HTTPS

RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R,L]


I need help on how to configure Apache to only apply the enforcement of https to calls via the internet using the domain name. In other words, all http calls to the server using the internal local server IP should not be redirected to https.
