    This can be done, in https://<yoursitename>:9443 then login with vaadmin, and goto the filrconfig. Here you can choose the Reverse Proxy on the left, and you come in a place where you can put your Hostname (the name wich will be send with the e-mail), and also the Reverse Proxy Secure HTTP port. Where you place 443 instead off 8443. Afther that, you must push the button 'Reconfigure Filr Server to get this new setting active. Think then i will work.

    HI HKO ... thanx.. it does the port change but the email now shows the host as http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:433 no https but only http .. so the firewall does not allow this in as it ONLY listens on port 443 and browser deos not auto redirected to https it only replies back with error on http.... tried to add https:// infrom of the hostname BUT that resolves is http://https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:443 .... all this asid as far as i can see anyway does the filr app (android) only allow you to connect to https:// and not http .... so from outside world http seems useless ..


    ANy Ideas?..

    In the network section of the appliance config you can enable port
    redirection and force secure connection. Doing that combined with the
    change in the reverse proxy would allow all users to just type
    host.domain.com (without specifying https) and they will automatically
    be redirected to https://host.domain.com.

    Hi J,

    Yes i got that.. but the thing is the mail that gets send out to a external user is http://xxx.xxx..xxx.xxx:443 or 8443 or what ever you set it to and on the firewall we have https listening ,, so if i go clean connection to https:///cxxx.xxx.xxx.xxx no problem like for instance with a andriod/ios device. .. which is hardcoded with https anyway .. it does not allow for http .... the thing is still the link send by email thats is http:// :whatever port .. so i suspect that if i on the firewall now make the port http then the mobile devices wont be able to connect on https .. i just need to change the email link send from http to https ?.

    Ah, I see what you're saying. The first e-mail which just contains the
    registration link uses http. After the user registers the second
    e-mail which has the actual file link, along with all subsequent
    e-mails, all use https. But if the user can't register then it doesn't
    matter what the subsequent e-mails do. To me I think this is a bug and
    so I've filed bug 821967.

    Hi,

    I've retested it on our filr boxes. Every first email has got the
    https in it. So imho no fix is needed.

    Link like this:

    I've duped the issue with our internal sandbox Filr server, so the
    issue is definitely there. I think it's a matter of finding the very
    specific config which causes it. Engineering is currently looking into
    the matter.
