MOB 00126 after having a http -> https redirect


Hi All,

I have been installing and configuring mobile on an enterprise environment 4.1 sp01 patch 2. We have a reverse proxy in place and we have secured our webtier with HTTPS ssl certificate for mobile connectivity.

Coming from the web you can use the DNS name. to be redirected over reverse proxy to the webtier. Two ports are open on reverse proxy: 80 (will redirected by reverse proxy to 8080 on tomcat) and 443 (will be redirected by reverse proxy to 8443).

While connecting to from BO mobile app, I will be aked to present the certificate and then it works nicely.

Now we dont want any insecure traffic so we decided to do a redirect on our tomcat 7, from http to https. (two files needed to be modified server.xml and web.xml) .

When I check the configuration and go in a regular browser to I can see a reload of the page to htts:// So that works,

But now my main issue: when I try to connect from the BO app to I get the following error message:

"null is not a valid request mob00126"

Does anybody know what to conclude? The bo mobile app will not support a Tomcat redirect? Is there another way to solve this?

Of course I could also redirect 80 to 8443 on the reverse proxy, but I have a doubt if that is going to work (and it is a difficult procedure to try with our hosting partner). Any thoughts would be welcome!

Kind regards,
