Security Console and Reverse Proxy

Hi!

 

Is there a way to get access to the Security Console behind a Reverse Proxy?

 

We have two network zones separated via a firewall: one for the clients, one for the servers

If I open the firewall the administrative client can get access to the security console via

https://<Server-FQDN>:7004/console-ims.

The server then redirects me to

https://<Server-FQDN>:7004/IMS-AA-IDP/InitialLogonDispatch.do

for the logon.

 

When the firewall only allows connections from the reverse proxy to the server, I can get access to the security console via

https://<Proxy-FQDN>:7004/console-ims

but then for the logon the server redirects me to

https://<Server-FQDN>:7004/IMS-AA-IDP/InitialLogonDispatch.do

As the direct connection is not allowed within the firewall, I cannot login.

 

It seems I cannot use the direct link to the logon page

https://<Proxy-FQDN>:7004/IMS-AA-IDP/InitialLogonDispatch.do

I always get an error there.

 

The other consoles

https://<Proxy-FQDN>:7072/operations-console

https://<Proxy-FQDN>:7004/console-selfservice

are working perfectly with the reverse proxy.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Daniel
