Running HelpDesk on a secure port (https) SSL


Although GroupLink Support does not support the set up of HelpDesk on a secure port, please refer to the following documentation as a guideline to configure tomcat with an SSL connection.

Please see attached PDF files.  One is for Self Signed and the other is for a Trusted Authority(ex. Verisign)

Note:  With version 11.5 or newer, there is a slight change to step 6:


Edit the follow section:

  <!--

    <Connector port="8443" protocol="org.apache.coyote.http11.Http11NioProtocol"

               maxThreads="150" SSLEnabled="true">

        <SSLHostConfig>

            <Certificate certificateKeystoreFile="conf/localhost-rsa.jks"

                         type="RSA" />

        </SSLHostConfig>

    </Connector>

    -->


Instead of:

keystoreFile="webapps\grouplink.bin"
keystorePass="ehelpdesk"


Use:

certificateKeystoreFile="webapps\grouplink.bin"
certificateKeystorePassword="ehelpdesk"
