Pinned topic Company policy does not allow to use other ports than 80 and 443

‏2011-11-14T17:39:04Z |
Hello everybody,

my customer would like to use the Sandbox to explore new functionality like CICS Explorer.
But direct access from an internal client to a Citrix Server within the Internet (Port 10056) is not allowed in his company. They are using Web proxies.
Is there a chance to provide a different (standard) port like 443?

Thank you,
Isabel Arnold

    Hello Isabel,
    443 is allowed. This FAQ specifically references the use of port 443
    http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/downloads/connection-faqs.html#ctrx
    That should work for the client.
    Thanks

    Thank you, Steve.

    Unfortunately I am not a Citrix person so I can only repeat (translate) what the customer tells me:
    The customer now asked whether it would be possible to use the Citrix Access Gateways (CAG), former CSG (Citrix Secure Gateway) at IBM. They say this would be the only way they could access the sandbox. In this case they could use this CAG as protocol converter accepting HTTPS packages and establishing a connection to the CITRIX Servers via the classic ports. In this case they could establish a connection via their proxy servers.
    They are using this mechanism themselves to provide Citrix applications.

    Would that work?
    Thanks, Isabel

    Isabel,

    I will look into that possibility, but it is likely to offer an immediate solution. For some customers, it is easier to access the SOA and EM Sandboxes from an internet cafe or a home computer, due to their corporate firewall and client mangement policies.

    I meant to say that it is ...NOT likely to provide an immediate solution... Sorry.
