Vibe 3.4 and SSL offloading

We are attempting to put our vibe application servers behind a network load balancer (F5) and are running into a few issues trying to offload the ssl. Basically our plan is users come in on port 443, the f5 decrypts and sends the traffic to vibe on port 8080. Has anyone else had success doing this or something similar?

When we attempt this, when trying to login with either a directory or local account we are told invalid credentials. When I look at the catalina out, it basically says that a password is required. Is thisa supported configuration?

Re: Vibe 3.4 and SSL offloading


I hit the same problem with a Filr install, but as the codebase is the same I imagine this fix will work for you.

The problem appears to be that the URLS embedded in the pages generated use absolute paths, as the server sees connections made via http the urls in the webpages generated are http://<filr-server>. I created an irule to replace http://servername with https://servername and now I can login successfully.
