Unhappy https works, but not http

i finally got my server to work with ssl (apache1.3 and mod-ssl), my problem now is that i can no longer use the normal web (http://ipaddr) to access the same page. only https://ipaddr works.

what i ultimately want to do is redirect it http to https.

here's some of my httpd.conf file:

Port 80
ServerName localhost
DocumentRoot /var/www/sql-ledger
<Directory /var/www/sql-ledger>
    Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
<VirtualHost *:80>

<VirtualHost *:443>
   <IfModule mod_ssl.c>
      SSLEngine on
      SSLCertificateFile       /etc/apache/ssl.crt/server.crt
      SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache/ssl.key/server.key
      SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*MSIE.*" nokeepalive ssl-unclean-shutdown
when i try the ipaddr, i get connection refused for http and it goes to the right site for https (p.s., i do have port 80 forwarded to my box )

thanks in advance

i added the following to make things work:

Listen 80
i'm not sure why i have to (cause i thought that's what "port 80" did (default port).

any comments/clarifications?
