Re: How do I configure HTTPS on System i v6r1?



fixed

Simple configuration change. Since each will run on their own server on
the port 80 server have it always reroute to the SSL server.

That is, if you always want them to use SSL.

I like the idea of using https for the whole site, it would make
configuration a lot easier, though there are A LOT of macro changes that
would need to be made. But it brings some questions:

- suppose someone enters http://idocket.com as the URL; how do I get that
to
auto-route to https://idocket.com ?
-- would that be a change in our DNS host config setting, or a web server
config directive change?

Tom,

I ran into this a little while ago and slogged through it myself. I
ended
up posting a blog about the process that you might find helpful:

I have the following website, hosted on the System i:

Clicking Register now on that homepage takes you to:
[4]https://secure.idocket.com/idocket/register.asp

As you can infer from the .asp, the https is hosted on a Windows server on
our internal network.

Management wants to move the https from the Windows server onto our System
I, and I'm all in on that. But it's been quite a long time (10 years?) and
many OS releases since I've done that. Can someone point me to a guide
that
walks me thru getting that up and going?

Thanks,
TomH
