Setting up HTTPS

Hi All,

There is a MS Windows terminal server which communicates via http with SAP NW04 BW3.5

I`d like to set up an HTTPS connection between them but don`t know if an SSL certificate is required?

Is there any notes and links relating on this?

Many thanks!

    If you want to use HTTPS then you should have security configured on the BW system. please refer : http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/41/845cdb9c548b419ee4e089841f1b6c/frameset.htm

    • > Do I need to have an SSL certificate from a company such as Verisign?

      No, this is only required for B2B scenarios. You can use self-signed certificates which can be created directly in the connected systems.

    Ok thanks!

    Besides, do I need to reconfigure the SAProuter and the Webdispatcher?

    Edit: what I ment by this is that is it better to set up HTTPS before setting up the saprouter and webdispatcher or are these elements independant and can be configured independently?

    Thanks

    • If you have web dispatcher as reverse proxy then you have to configure HTTPS according to Web dispatcher as first the request will go to Web dispatcher then to the SAP server.

      Accordingly you have to configure SSL.

    Thanks a lot for the links.

    Actually, there is no Java stack running, therefore, no need to configure it for HTTPS.

    I´m using this link: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/20/37c33ae8361838e10000000a11402f/content.htm

    and don´t understant what is the "SSL Server PSE node", can someone help me on this please?

    Thanks!

    The https connection is going to be used to secure connection between 2 BI systems (dev and prod) printing Web Reports into a portal. (BI servers and Portal are located on separate servers)

    We switch from Dev to Prod thanks to a Web dispatcher located on an other server having no SAP instance.

    Is there something to do with the SAP portal J2EE config to accept HTTPS connections?

    I´m using port 1443 as for the parameter icm/server_port_X on BI systems, is that the correct port?

    Do I have to specify this onto the Portal´s J2EE configtool?

    Thanks for your answers!

      Hi Hemant,

      Thanks for your help, the used SAP account has SAP_ALL and SAP_NEW profile, same as DDIC account we have here.

      Then what is the difference?
