    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.
          Cristian.

            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? :)
