Shibboleth SP 2.5.2 on IIS authenticates with HTTP, not with HTTPS

I have the following site configuration settings in shibboleth2.xml, on a Windows 2008 R2 server running IIS 7.5:

    <InProcess logger="native.logger">
        <ISAPI normalizeRequest="true" safeHeaderNames="true">
            <Site id="1" name="" scheme="https" port="443"/>

    <RequestMapper type="Native">
        <RequestMap applicationId="default">
            <Host name="" authType="shibboleth" requireSession="true"/>

The IIS site ID is 1, it's listening on both http and https on ports 4160 (http) and 4161 (https) and is setting behind a load balancer/VIP that's listening on standard ports 80 and 443, using as its domain (actual domain withheld for privacy).

If I access the site via http I get redirected. If I access via https it passes me through to the site without any authentication. This seems backwards to what I would expect from this configuration-I'd expect only the https requests to require authentication.

Any thoughts on how I can correct this to force authentication for both http and https?

Thank you!
