In GroupWise 18 we enforce HTTPS secure communication in new apache-tomcat combo installed on a server.


On Linux platforms go into /etc/apache2/conf.d directory. There will be new file, rewrite.conf. You can rename it completely or edit with a text editor and leave only first line statement just in case you need a redirection for another parts of apache web server. Then restart rcgrpwise-tomcat8 service.

On Windows, go into C:\Novell\GroupWise\Tomcat\conf directory. Make a copy of web.xml file and then open original version with a text editor. Scroll down to a section "<security-constraint>".
Rem out each line that belongs to that statement:

<!-- <securitity-constraint> -->
and so on till the last line
<!-- </securitity-constraint> -->

Then save changes and restart Apache-Tomcat 8.5 Tomcat8 service.
