Pinned topic Enforce Webseal Junction

‏2013-02-05T07:47:20Z |
Dear All,
I have some issue regarding the webseal configuration, the concept is when someone try to open the back end server, he will be redirected to the webseal, am I correct ?

I already create a webseal and junction, but I still dont know to enforce the user request so he will be redirected to the webseal,
Is there any steps that I have not configured ?

Please your advice,

Thanks,
Best Regards,
achmad

    Hello Achmad,

    Actually you would not allow someone to access the back-end directly. The redirect you are talking about should already happen before the request reaches WebSEAL or the back-end application.
    Network settings like DNS, firewall, load-balancers should make sure that requests that need to go trough a WebSEAL, are actually sent to WebSEAL.

    Sincerely,
    Hans Vandeweghe

    Dear Hans,

    so we have to manually forward the request to go through webseal, I understand,
    I already create junction, and the login form is in /homepage/login/login_form.php
    so the webseal that I made is https://webseal/homepage/login/login_form.php, but if I open the login form using this junction, the browser will stop at the login page even though I already type my credentials (the content of the backend server is located in /homepage).
    when I create another junction https://webseal/homepage , I have to type the /login/form.php in the browser address then I can go through to the login form and after I type the credentials, it goes well (I can go back to the /homepage and access all of this content),

    Is it any file configuration in the webseal instance to make sure that the user will be forwarded to the desired path (in this case /homepage/login/form.php) using junction https://webseal/homepage

    Please advice,

    Thanks,
    Best Regards,
    Achmad
