Yes for external communication the QPS listens to port 443 by default.
What you are observing are most likely the traffic from the QPS to other Qlik Sense services.
Can you open QMC on the machine where QS is installed?
Make sure there are no firewalls or proxy settings blocking or intercepting any traffic on the server.
How are you trying to access QMC, through https://<machine name>/qmc/ or some other address?
QS will self-sign certificates when you install it for the current machine name so if you have your own SSL certificate make sure you apply the thumbprint to the proxy otherwise you will get a lot of SSL errors from the clients.
Thanks for replying.
Unable to open QMC "Cant Display Page" error.
Proxy is fine, tested that.
No obvious blocks in the firewall that I can see.
I'm accessing QMC, through https://<machine name>/qmc/ , which is the same as the QS shortcut icon.
I have installed QS on a Win Server 2008 R2 Virtual, thinking that this might be an issue I also tested an install on a
new Physical server running Win 2012
I'll double check with the infrastructure team again to see if 443 is blocked somewhere else in the forest causing the problem...
Are you running QS server ?
Ye we are running a few
Since you can even access it locally on the server it seems like either a certificate issue or maybe a local proxy (not qps) that is interfering.
We have roughly 20 servers up and running all with 2012 virtual OS so that should not be a problem.
Also on the server see if you can access QMC through localhost instead.
