HTTPS RFC between 2 ABAP system


we need to create and HTTPS RFC between 2 ABAP systems.

we created HTTP RFC and gave the service port 443 (the HTTPS RFC) and in the logon tab we maintaind the SSL Activity to Active and Default SSL Client (Standard) but when i try to test connection i get SSL Handshake to <ABAP SYSTEM Hostname>:443 Fail

Could you please advise what else needs to be done.

    Hello Ahmad,

    You will use the transaction STRUST in both systems.

    At the target system, export the SSL server certificate (if it is self-signed).

    Then, import this at the "client standard" of the source system.

    If it is a signed certificate, you can import the public CA (certification authority) certificate instead.

    If it still fails, export the "client standard" certificate of the source system and import this at the "SSL server" of the target system.

    Hello Ahmad,

    Try which Isaias has mentioned above.

    For PSE:

    As we know PSE certificate is required when your both systems are enabled for Transport level security (TSL). Procedures are same for implementing the certificate for TSL too. But the folder will be System PSE instead of SSL client (standard).
