    Domain name with proxy server

    Hi,

    We have an apache proxy server in the DMZ (say with the DNS www.ourcompany.com port 80) redirects all our external client requests to our internal app/web server (say, server1.domain.com port 8080).

    Our app url will always have the www.ourcompany.com before the application context root. How do we specify the domain name in this case? Tried 'ourcompany.com' and it doesn't work.

    Also, if the protocol is https, will it work (for testing purposes) without the SSL cert installed on the LS server?

    Thanks
    -Kal

    Hi Kal,

    If the address used by the client to connect to the web server is www.ourcompany.com:80, then the address used to connect to LS server should be somethinbg like push.ourcompany.com:80 and the domain to set will be "ourcompany.com".

    If the connections to the web server are based on SSL, then an SSL certificate is needed on Ls server too.

    Cheers,
    Alessandro

    Alessandro,

    ourcompany.com is not the actual domain name of the machine. It is only a DNS alias to the box. Is it ok to give that as the domain name? Your reference to 'push.company.com' is for the load balancer, right?



    Thanks,
    -Kal

    Kal,

    The domain to use is the one that the browser sees and uses for outbound connections. It does not matter if it is actually only an alias and a server-side redirection is done (due to a proxy server or a load balancer). The only requirement from the browser is that both the connections to the web server and the connections to the push server are done toward addresses (virtual or real) that have the same domain name. This is just a syntactic check, not a physical check.

    Hope that helps!

    That is exactly what we wanted to know. Thanks Alessandro!
