[DeleGate-En] Re: http URL redirection and SSL
02 Dec 2002 07:10:34 GMT "Blake, Jordan (ISS Atlanta)" <>

Thanks for your help. I actually wasn't attempting to use url redirection at the same time as the tcprelay, but rather as a possible alternative. In any case, what you said below makes sense.
To troublehsoot this issue, I started Delegate 8.1.0 Win32 with this command-line (sslway is working fine):
< DIV>delegated -v-P500 FCL=sslway ADMIN="test@" PERMIT="*:*:*"
It seems that when I connect to any redirected URL that doesn't have a "/" after the hostname, it will try to connect to it using http instead of https and subsequently fail.
When I type in Internet Explorer automatically tries to connect as (it replaces the "https" with "http" and adds a "/" at the end). This fails.
So instead I type in (with a trailing "/") directly and it works fine first try.
Incidentally, the BASEURL switch does not seem to affect this behavior.
If I start delegate without the FCL=sslway, everything works fine no matter how the URL is typed (and it will automatically add the "/").

	If you are chaining DeleGate as tcprelay-DeleGate -> HTTPS-DeleGate
	like describe in <URL:>,
	then you need a parameter
	at the HTTPS-DeleGate.  Since RELAY=delegate makes DeleGate visible to
	HTTP clients as it it is a origin server, the URL of DeleGate to be
	shown by itself to client must be the one which clients identify the
	DeleGate.  Clients are seeing the URL (address) of tcprelay-DeleGate as
	if it is the real HTTP-DeleGate server in this case.
