Pinned topic Add SSL to website: works with pass through, not when routing

‏2012-12-04T10:32:13Z |
As described in another topic here, I'm trying to set-up a service which is adding SSL for an existing web-service.
The web-service is a "normal" HTTP website which is using and has a form which is doing a postback.

I tried several ways to create a service which is routing the HTTP-requests to the HTTP server but the only way to get the postback working is by putting everything in pass-thru with a MPGW.

When I use a Web Application Firewall:
  • I can see the website but when I click on a button on the form, the same page reloads without executing the action of the button. I tried almost every option which exists in the WAF but can't seem to solve this issue. I tried with and without routing.

When I use a MPGW:
  • I can see the website but have the same issue like with the WAF. Unless I change the request and response to pass-thru on the general tab, put the persistent connections off and allow HTML-messages with an empty body.
Then everything is more or less working as it should.

The issue I have with that is that I would like to have a dynamic backend or use routing to send the HTTP-requests to another HTTP-server, based on several criteria. But as soon as I execute any processing rule (by changing the response type to anything other than pass-thru), the webpage is not working anymore.

There are no messages in the log regarding this problem and since I'm not processing anything, the probe isn't helping either.

    Some extra information on this:

    The problem seems to be related to redirection:
    • When using Response=redirect, we get the error
    • When using server.transfer, only some clients get the error.

    Anybody knows what could be a possible solution for this issue?
