‏2012-11-20T14:27:05Z |
Hello everyone;

I'm a novice developer in DP, and i got a trouble with WS-Proxy, i got a group of errors with WS-Proxy and i can't continue with the tailoring of this module. I attach the screenshots for the analysis.

Thanks in advise and regards from Colombia.

Cristian.

    Hello

    Your error is 'failed to establish a backside connection'. You try to root your message to an https url

    Did you set a SSL Proxy?

    I see in your log this message : credential is NULL.

    You have to create a SSL proxy to set your ssl key

    Hello!

    Thanks for your answer, i see in my DP Control panel two options:

    • SSL Proxy Profile
    • SSL Proxy Service

    My question is: do i have to configure both (profile and service)? and what about HTTPS (ssl) front side handler? it's mandatory too?

    Thanks again and regards from Colombia.

    Hello

    You have to configure a SSL Proxy Profile to set your ssl key

    and what about HTTPS (ssl) front side handler? It's when a client want to access datapower with ssl.

    Your case is the opposite. Yo want datapower acces a web server in https.

    Hello!!

    Thanks for your help; one more question, what about SSL proxy models (forward, reverse, two-way) i'm reading some documentation about that, and i read about them.

    Forward: SSL proxy acts as an SSL client.
    Reverse: SSL proxy acts as an SSL server.
    Two-way: SSL proxy acts as both (client and server)

    For my tailoring, i suppose to use "forward" SSL proxy because i want to establish connection with a https web server; is that right?

    Thanks for your help.
    Regards.

    Use Forward : client --> datapower (you specified a SSL Proxy in a Front Side Handler HTTPS)
    Use reverse : datapower --> client (you specified a SSL Proxy in a WSP in tab "Proxy Settings", in SSL Proxy)

    Is that clear? :)
