Adding port in http header information??

Unanswered Question
Apr 8th, 2009

I have a standard HTTPS to HTTP conversion going through a CSS 11506. The CSS terminates the SSL and then passes the cleartext traffic to the backend server via port 8011. The backend server receives this traffic on port 8011 but the http header does not specify port 8011 at the end of the url (e.g. but only passes through The backend server thinks this traffic has come in on port 80 and reports a 302 error (redirect). Is there some way the CSS can add the :8011 port number into the http header for all traffic bound to the backend server?

Many thanks,


I have this problem too.

No, there is no way to add the port to the host info.

You can run 2 different instances of the server - each one on its own port - so they don't need to verify the port inside the http request.
