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



fixed

One way to do it is change your existing configuration to use SSL then add a new section to listen on port 80 and put in
Redirect Permanent / https://idocket.com

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:

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
