Is it possible to use hglab over https? I.e. instead of cloning "hg clone http://lalala" use "hg clone https://lalala"?
If it is already implemented, how to configure IIS properly?

    HgLab does support SSL - in fact, it is IIS that enables this functionality. Let me know if you need guidance on how to install a certificate on your server.

    If a clone URL happens to be incorrect (that is, https:// rather than https://, this can always be changed in Administration - General).

    There's one problem with SSL, though. Due to a bug/feature in Python's SSL module, overly large pushes (with "large" defined as being anything from 10 Mb to 30 Mb - issue reports vary) are rejected on the IIS level and never succeed. This is presumably fixed in Mercurial 2.8.2 (and corresponding version of GUI tools). What's more, older versions of Mercurial work just fine.

    Hope that helps.
