RDS-WebAccess


Enforce HTTPS protocol

Standard Case

You can redirect every web request which uses HTTP to the HTTPS secure protocol.

To activate this feature on a server, create (or edit) the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\RDS-WebAccess\Clients\webserver\settings.bin" and add the following line:

disable_http_only=true

Save the file and restart RDS-WebAccess web servers (AdminTool > Web > Restart Web Servers).

Once this feature is enabled, you can try to browse to the insecure web page at:

http://your-server

and it will automatically redirect your request to the secure Web Portal page at:

https://your-server

Special case: Custom Web Ports

If you are using a specific port to serve HTTPS, then create (or edit) the file "C:\Program Files (x86)\RDS-WebAccess\Clients\webserver\settings.bin" and use the following line instead of the line described above:

disable_http_only="domain.com:4431"

where domain.com is your own server host name and 4431 is your HTTPS custom port.

Save the file and restart RDS-WebAccess web servers (AdminTool > Web > Restart Web Servers).

Once this feature is enabled, you can try to browse to the insecure web page at:

http://domain.com

and it will automatically redirect your request to the secure Web Portal page at:

https://domain.com:4431
