Default HTTPS forwarding Problem - BES

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all

I've been troubleshooting a problem with our Qlikview server and Blackbery app and I think it's something to do with the BES or at least the MDS but I'm a bit of a n00b where this is concerned.

To explain:

We have a server on our network that runs a Qlikview reporting server. It has a Blackberry app that I'm currently configuring for SSL. Our Blackberrys run off our own BES which forwards traffic through our proxy server and then on to its internal destination.

The problem I'm having is that despite the app being configured to only use SSL the connection that gets to the Qlikview server is standard port 80. Tracking back through the logs it seems the connection from the BES that hits the proxy is port 80 despite the app only using 445. Having been through everything I can with Qlikview support it would appear that the BES seems to be receiving the connection request and forwarding it on as HTTP.

I've checked the MDS Proxy string and it is set as below:

Universal resource locator Description
h t t p ://.* Web
h t t p s://.* SSL

The Details for the https string are:

Proxy item Proxy string Proxy type
PROXY (IPaddress):8080 (IPaddress):8080 PROXY

Is there anything I could be missing or BES logs I should check? I'm stumped!


I should add that I can see the connection from the device in the MDAT log coming in as 443.

Default Re: HTTPS forwarding Problem - BES


I added in a direct mapping for the internal server "h t t p s://servername.*" and it still went over http to the proxy so I added in "h t t p://servername.*" and it now bypasses the proxy but still hits the other end as port 80. I'm guessing I can amalgamate these into ".*://servername.*"

The internal server is a test server so has a self signed cert and we have untrusted certs set to 'No' on the MDS. Does anyone know if this simply refuse the connection or would it send it through http?
