Enforce HTTPS protocol

Standard Case

Starting from Terminal Service Plus version 9.20, you can redirect every web request which uses HTTP to the HTTPS secure protocol.

To activate this feature on a server, create (or edit) the file „C:\Program Files (x86)\TSplus\Clients\webserver\settings.bin“ and add the following line:

disable_http_only=true

Save the file and restart Terminal Service Plus web servers (AdminTool > Web > Restart Web Servers).

Once this feature is enabled, you can try to browse to the insecure web page at:

http://your-server

and it will automatically redirect your request to the secure Web Portal page at:

https://your-server

Special case: Custom Web Ports

If you are using a specific port to serve HTTPS, then create (or edit) the file „C:\Program Files (x86)\TSplus\Clients\webserver\settings.bin“ and use the following line instead of the line described above:

disable_http_only="domain.com:4431"

where domain.com is your own server host name and 4431 is your HTTPS custom port.

Save the file and restart Terminal Service Plus web servers (AdminTool > Web > Restart Web Servers).

Once this feature is enabled, you can try to browse to the insecure web page at:

http://domain.com

and it will automatically redirect your request to the secure Web Portal page at:

https://domain.com:4431
