Abstract

OSP-IWS SUPPORT SSL OVER PROXY IN THE CLIENT (IFS)

Error Description

The integrated web services client for ILE does not support    
using SSL when connecting to a proxy server.                    

Problem Summary

The integrated web services client for ILE does not support    
using SSL when connecting to a proxy server.                    

Problem Conclusion

The client transport support has been enhanced to support SSL  
when connecting to a proxy server. The support includes:        
                                                               
(1) The ability to use a secure channel (SSL) when connecting to
a proxy server. In order to indicate that SSL is to be used when
connecting to the proxy server, a call to the API              
axiscStubSetProxySSL must be made:                              
                                                               
RPG: axiscStubSetProxySSL(WsStub.handle: 1);                    
                                                               
C:   axiscStubSetProxySSL(handle, 1);                          
                                                               
If using the transport APIs, you will need to issue the        
following:                                                      
                                                               
RPG:    propBuf1 = 'true' + X'00';                              
        axiscTransportSetProperty(tHandle:                      
AXISC_PROPERTY_HTTP_PROXYSSL: %addr(propBuf1));                
                                                               
C:      axiscTransportSetProperty(tHandle,                      
AXISC_PROPERTY_HTTP_PROXYSSL, "true");                          
                                                               
(2) The ability to perform SSL tunneling when connecting to a  
proxy server over an unsecure channel.  In SSL tunneling,      
encrypted data is passed through the proxy server unaltered.    
This will happen automatically if the web service endpoint uses
the 'https' protocol.
