Environment

Novell iFolder 3

Situation

File uploads/downloads between an iFolder 3.x server and client will be several times quicker over HTTP compared with the default of HTTPS.

Resolution

To allow clients to connect via HTTP, edit the file:

/opt/novell/ifolder3/etc/web.config

and change the value="yes" to value="no" on the following line:



Restart ifolder to put that change into effect:

/opt/novell/ifolder3/etc/simias-stop
/opt/novell/ifolder3/etc/simias-start

Logging-in for the first time from a client will use HTTP as the default protocol.

To force a particular client to use HTTPS, when configuring the account on the client use "https://servername" rather than just "servername".
