ITS scenario

Hi all,

our landscape is build-on:

Internet-User -> SAP WebDispatcher -> Portal -> standalone ITS 6.2 -> SAP R/3

With different full qualified domain names for every instance. Is such a configuration possible or should we need a reverse proxy instead of SAP WebDispatcher ? At the moment the intranet users can still see the iviews from SAP R/3 but not from the internet.

Please give me some advise on this.

Thanks,

Dirk

    Hello Dirk,

    What's the reason that the INTRAnet user can access an iView but note INTERnet users? Probably because the host name of the "standalone ITS 6.2" is not known outside of your INTRAnet. If that is the case then what would you like to do? Some choices:

    1. give the "standalone ITS 6.2" a host name that is available on the INTERnet

    2. put a webdispatcher, reverse proxy, or proxy in front of the "standalone ITS 6.2" that has a host name that is accessible from the INTERnet.

    What is the final goal and where are the users coming from? Thanks.

    Hi Dirik,

    This is normal scenario, it must work.

    only thing we need to be careful is about the target frame in browser.

    Regards

    Hi Dirk,

    Please note that the requirement for direct access between the client and the backend is well flagged in the documentation. For instance, please refer to the Portal Security Guide, specifically the section "Network and Communication Security" (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04s/helpdata/en/b9/c892f1ffc34156883ddd24aec01253/frameset.htm):

    'Neither the portal nor the AS Java provides a proxy function. [...] If you have set up a network architecture with one or more firewalls, and your portal integrates iViews that initiate client-backend communication, you must set up access for the client through the firewalls to the application server in the back end.'

    This page also provides a table detailing the kind of connections that are established for each iview. For transaction iviews using webgui, there should be a direct connection between the client (browser) and the ITS.

    Hope this helps 😊

    Michael
