Qlikivew server 11 IIS with https

Hi All,

I am trying to implement https on my qlikview server. We are running Qlikview on IIS. The webmaster says he has already installed SSL certficate on the server

Now I am trying to run Qlikview over https. I have searched many posts but none of the post is showing a detailed guide on how to do https implementation on my qlikview

Most of people are pointing to Qlikview server reference manual. I have searched Qlikview server reference but I cannot find the section where they have explained how to implement server over https

Can someone please guide me to the right direction. I will appreciate if you could either explain briefly how can I do it, or attach some document which has such details

I will really appreciate your help

Regards

Arif

Re: Qlikivew server 11 IIS with https

If you are running IIS then everything is done in IIS. You will need to make sure that 443 is NATed in your firewall to point to the QlikView Server.

Now if you are running both IIS and QVWS then you will need to follow the direction in the manual to setup IIS.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the reply. I have pretty good knowledge in Qlikview but dont have much information about IIS. Can you please explain briefly how do you mean to make sure port 443 is nated in my firewall to point to Qlikview server. I have also checked the option in Qlikview managemnt console to use https and port 443

Really appreciate you guidance here

Hi Arif,

You never said what your system configuration is. Are you running just IIS, QVWS or IIS and QVWS?

Nat is when you have a web address like https://qlik.com

Your firewall has to know where to send that to inside your network.

I have configured my Qlikview server on IIS and made it accessible outside internet. It is a windows server 2008 machine. I am using QV11

Re: Qlikivew server 11 IIS with https

Then you have an issue with IIS. This would not be a Qlikview issue. You will need to get someone to look at the IIS setup on the server.

you can try this to see if it comes back with any error.

You put the outside address in and it will check your certificate

Hi Bill,

Many thanks. I have checked the website and it says it is installed correctly

DNS resolves '---.---.com' to 00.00.00.00

SSL certificate

This certificate does not use a vulnerable Debian key (this is good)

SSL Certificate expiration

Certificate Name matches ---.---.com

SSL Certificate is correctly installed

Now how do I make sure that the traffic only goes though https? WhenI try https instead of http, my traffic is routed to http://mywebsite
