Pinned topic AJAX and HTTPS Disconnect

‏2010-10-28T23:47:34Z |
I have an environment where we have enabled AJAX to both detect a host screen refresh and a the closing of a browser to force a host disconnect. We have an IIS 6.0 server with the WebSphere plug-in installed front ending a WAS 7 server on Linux running the HATS application. We deployed it and it works great as long as we use HTTP and direct the request through the IIS server. When we convert to HTTPS protocol on all links we work for a few screens, but then we get the Disconnected message in the user's browser. If we use HTTPS and change the URL to point directly to the HTTP Server running on the WAS machine everything works well. If we disable AJAX and use HTTPS on all links, everything works perfectly.

I am working remotely so getting debug information is slow. I'm trying to get the IIS server plugin log to help diagnose the problem. In the interim anyone have an idea as to what could be causing the problem?

    Are you using a signed CA SSL cert? Have you imported the self-signed cert for WAS into ISS?

    Also, why use IIS and not IHS? Much easier to configure and control from the WAS console.

    We are using self-signed certs, and YES the cert is installed in IIS.

    You did not read the post properly. The last sentence reads:
    "If we disable AJAX and use HTTPS on all links, everything works perfectly."
    this tells you that the certs are installed.

    We have also found that when using HTTPS through IIS perforemance is slow, so
    our current position is that the default polling times and disconnect timeout is to short for the conditions. We are trying to access logs to see if there are any errors that indicate what is wrong.

    Whether any further communication happened on this issue. Are there any suggestions?
