Hello,

 

is it possible to access FreeFlow Core via Browser through a https request? Http is no problem.

If so, how and is there any documentation about that topic?

Thank you in advance.

FFCore does not support HTTPS at this time.

Oops  my bad I misrerad the https usage you were referring to.

The following is in the FFCore security Guide:

 

When a browser connects to the Xerox® FreeFlow® Core webpage, a Silverlight client is downloaded to

the browser. Secure download of the Xerox® FreeFlow® Core client and secure communication between

the client and Xerox® FreeFlow® Core requires the use of HTTPS connections. To enable HTTPS connections,

a TLS/SSL certificate must be added to Internet Information Services (IIS) per the Windows

documentation.

This should done by your IT department. There is no default simple answer(s).  The CA can provide a lot of guidance as does IIS documentation.

Some steps to consider:

  1. Decide on type of certificate self-signed or from a Certificate Authority (CA).
    1. Certificate from CA requires Internet access and a public domain on the Internet.
    2. Must use self-signed on private network.
  2. Buy the appropriate type of certificate.
    1. Either wildcard or named. The purchasing process varies by type and installation method.
  3. Install the certificate.
    1. Installation varies depending on IIS version, type of certificate, and how the CA issues the certificate.
