Thanks for all the replies.  For posterity, here's how you redirect all 
connections to an Apache server to SSL (https):

make sure mod_rewrite is loaded:

LoadModule rewrite_module modules/mod_rewrite.so

and add this to your httpd.conf file:

RewriteEngine  on
RewriteCond    %{SERVER_PORT}  !^443$
RewriteRule    ^/(.*)          https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [L,R,NC]
