Advice setting up a tunnel


Hi,
I may be a bit thick here. I want to proxy an application that has a
full HTTP user portal as well as a Java-based administrator's interface
(with some HTTP traffic) all on the same web server (port 8080 - I think
it is running on Tomcat). I have set up a reverse proxy with the DNS
name servicedesk.dmu.ac.uk. This works fine for the user part
(https://servicedesk.dmu.ac.uk/Sostenuto/SUsers), but it does not work
well for the Java part (/Sostenuto/servlet/sostenuto). So, I
configured a tunnel for the non-HTTP traffic, listening on port 443 and
connecting to port 8080, DNS name servicedeskadmin.dmu.ac.uk (?), and
listening on different IP addresses. I think some of the traffic for
the admin part is HTTP though. Needless to say it does not work. How
do you set up a tunnel for a web site that has some HTTP and some
none-HTTP traffic? Since it seems you cannot use the same DNS name how
on earth do you make this work? :confused: Does anyone have any advice
please?
Regards

Re: Advice setting up a tunnel


Hi,
Putting it simply, I have a web server where x.com/a is HTTP and x.com/b
is a java programme (I.e. non-HTTP). How do I configure AM for this? I
assume I need a tunnel to cope with the non-HTTP traffic.
Regards

Are you sure the Java program is not using HTTP for all its
communications? It sounds like the applet is communicating on HTTP
ports. Is it communicating to the server in any other way?
