Secure Mobile Access 100 10.2 Administration Guide

HTTP/HTTPS Service Settings

Administrators can take the following steps to configure HTTP/HTTPS Service Settings:

  1. Enable Content Caching is selected by default. Administrators can disable the check box if they choose to do so. However, changing the Enable Content Cache setting restarts Secure Mobile Access Services, including the web server.

    In the Cache Size field, define the size of the desired content cache. 5 MB is the default setting, but administrators can set any size in the valid range from two to 20 MB. Select Flush to flush the content cache.

  2. Check Enable Custom HTTP/HTTPS Response Buffer Size if you wish to establish a response buffer. Set the desired buffer size using the Buffer size drop-down menu. This limit is enforced for HTTP and HTTPS responses from the backend Web server for plain text, Flash, and Java applets. The default size of the buffer is 1024 KB.
  3. Check Insert Proxy Request Headers to insert these types of headers into the HTTP/HTTPS requests to the backend Web server. The following headers are inserted:

    • X-Forwarded-For: Specifies the client IP address of the original HTTP/HTTPS request.
    • X-Forwarded-Host: Specifies the “Host” in the HTTP/HTTPS request from the client.
    • X-Forwarded-Server: Specifies the host name of the SMA proxy server.
  4. Check Restrict Request Headers to strip unrecognized HTTP request headers.
  5. Check Enable Flash Rewriting to rewrite URLs contained in Flash files. Rewriting URLs in Flash might work only with a few websites. Application Offloading is recommended for unsupported Web sites. This feature is disabled by default.
