HTTP-to-HTTPS Redirection

Karla Marsh
EFT Express (SMB) & Enterprise

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server version 5.1 and later

DISCUSSION

If you have installed the High Security module (HSM), you can redirect HTTP connections to HTTPS on the Connection Options tab for the Site. The HTTP engine listens to a specified port (default = 80) even when OFF; all traffic is redirected to the HTTPS port on the same host (using HTTP header), by responding with a redirect.

To activate this feature prior to version 5.1 or if your HSM has expired, create the following key:

32-bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 3.0\

64-bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 3.0\

Create the DWORD RedirectHTTPtoHTTPS and set it to a non-zero value.

When set to a non-zerovalue, all traffic coming to HTTP port will be redirected to HTTPS port using HTTP protocol (header redirection).


The HTTP port will be LISTENING even if the check box is OFF for that protocol, including through DMZ Gateway.
