NAM Support for WSS Connections

Hi All,

Similar request to the thread https://forums.novell.com/showthread.php/501876-cannot-connect-to-server-wss which appeared to go unanswered.

I have a web app proxied through NAM 4.3.2, which works for the most part, until a user invokes a connection which appears to be WSS:// related. This fails with the browser complaining about not being able to connect to server on wss://.......

My reading seems to suggest this can be supported on Apache through the use of the mod_proxy_wstunnel module. I can't find reference to this in the NAM install httpd.conf file however.

Anybody had any luck or have any further info on supporting web sockets through NAM Access Gateways?

I believe web socket support is coming in the next version 4.4 which is due soon. I think from memory it can't be done in apache 2.2 which is used by
4.3 and earlier versions. 4.4 uses apache 2.4.

Thanks mate,

Confirmed with NetIQ that it will be supported in 4.4.
