SSL Offload


Does any know if EP6 SP3 supports SSL Offload, i.e., HW that accepts incoming HTTPS connections and forwards that to the applications servers. In EP5 SP5 this is still not supported as the HTTP entity body does contains absolute HTTP schemes.

Thanks in advance.

    depends on what you mention: Yes.

    What is HW? EP60 can forward incoming https connections to application servers in http.

      I´ve implemented a hardware SSL Offloader for EP 5.0 SP4 for one customer. The solution have been live for one year now and is working fine.

      We had some initial trouble for some administration pages (the user management part) that required small changes related to the BASE HREF tag, as well as the SP4 Active-X iViewEditor.

      But in the big picture, it works pretty well!

      PS. The hardware vendor was SonicWall, can´t remember the product name.
