Implementing Application gateway for 2 enterprise portals with backend syst

Hello Experts,

We have a scenario where in we have 2 different portal with backend SAP systems attached to them. We want to expose those to internet. we have an SSL certificate with a FQDN https://www.XXX.com

Can we have a mechanism in the application gateway wherein we can bifurcate the two portals by https://www.XXX.com/abc and https://www.XXX.com/xyz so that different users can logon to specific portal.

should we use a web dispatcher or apache reverse proxy for this scenario.

Awaiting your reply.

Regards,

Vinayak

    Hi,

    A while ago you had no choice then Apache Reverse Proxy...

    Since a while now SAP has enhanced the Web Dispatcher so that one web dispatcher installation can handle more than one system. Check the following articles for details:

    Overview: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70ehp2/helpdata/en/03/afe24bfeb7419b9172ffb6e7636926/frameset.htm

    Detail: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70ehp2/helpdata/en/b0/ebfa88e9164d26bdf1d21a7ef6fc25/frameset.htm

    Example: http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70ehp2/helpdata/en/b0/ebfa88e9164d26bdf1d21a7ef6fc25/frameset.htm

    PS you still can choose to use the Apache Rev Proxy foor this but now you also have an native SAP alternative ....

    Cheers and good luck,

    Hi Benjamin,

    Thank you for the reply. We have installed web dispatcher 720 and are working on the same. We have configured two ports each for one portal, is there any way we can hide the port while entering the URL in the browser.

    for example http://www.xxx.com/abc instead of http://www.xxx.com:50000/abc.

    Awaiting your reply.

    Regards,

    Vinayak

      Hello Benjamin,

      I had seen the 2nd example. This talks about one ERP and and one EP. In our scenario we have 2 EP's and backend systems to both EP's and we are handling the backend systems are mentioned in the doc (/sap/ & /irj/)

      So both the EPs are differentiated with port, only thing is we wanted to hide the port on internet for security purposes. So is there any possible solution for that.
