3.3.Installing the Proxy web services

How to allow HTTPS secure connection between the proxy server and the contentACCESS in case of need?

Before you proceed with this configuration, it is necessary to mention that the proxy server must be installed with the option “Use secure connection”; otherwise it is not possible to establish HTTPS connection between the proxy server and contentACCESS.
Continue according to the next steps:

  1. Open Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager on the computer where the proxy server is installed.
  2. Import the company’s SSL Certificate

a. Click on the server name – “TANEWS(TANEWS\Administrator)” in our case – and under section IIS double click on Server Certificates:


b. Import the certificate. In the right hand corner of the Actions pane click on Import and in the Import certificate window browse for the company’s certificate, open it, then enter the password to it and click on OK:



c. Bindings configuration. Now enable the access to the proxy from HTTPS. Search for the node contentACCESSWS in the Connections pane. Double click on the Default Web Site in the pane, and in the right upper corner of the Actions pane click on Bindings option.

In the Site Bindings window, click on Add. In the Add site binding window, under Type select “https” from the dropdown list, enter the Host name and select the SSL certificate from the dropdown list. Then click on OK.


d. Cancellation of HTTP-allowance. If you would not like to allow using HTTP connection any more, unfold the appropriate site in the Connections pane and click on the proxy (contentACCESSWS), then double click on SSL Settings option under IIS section (Screenshot A). The SSL Settings page will open. Here check checkbox Require SSL (Screenshot B).

e. In the right hand corner click on Apply to save these changes.


f. Check if the communication between the proxy and the contentACCESS is well established. Into the browser enter URL:
If the connection was well established, then the ping result will show OK.
