Reverse proxy | passcorepro
By geoperez - 7/12/2019
The easiest way to use SSL for Passcorepro is using IIS as a reverse proxy, IIS has a better handling for certificates and their manipulation.
To create a reverse proxy we need to have installed IIS in the server as well as two extra modules:
Application Request Routing https://www.iis.net/downloads/microsoft/application-request-routing
Once we have installed all the requirements, we proceed to configure the site
Open the IIS and select your Server in the right panel. Inside the subpanel IIS, select the module Application Request Routing.
Open the module “Application Request Routing” in the “Actions” panel, click on Server Proxy Settings…
Enable the proxy option and apply changes.
Select your Web Site which will be used for redirecting to Passcorepro and click on bindings, add the type https, type your domain, select the port to be used (443 by default) and choose the certificate that you have added to IIS.
The next step is to create a rule to redirect the request from this website to Passcorepro, to do that open the URL Rewrite module.
Inside URL Rewrite click on “Add Rule(s)…” in the prompt window select “Reverse Proxy” and click “ok” .
In the prompt window “Add Reverse Proxy Rules” add the URL of Passcorepro in this case Passcorepro is installed in the same server running in the por 8686, verify the option “Enable SSL Offloading” is checked and click ok.
Test it typing your domain in your browser; in my case is https://passcore.testing.com it will open Passcorepro login screen.
