May we have our Proxy back?
Yes, I know that this is a little too late. But, I guess I have to vent here a bit because I still have never received a good answer. Why was there never a replacement for IIS Proxy? I know the lines that I will be getting. Use Apache. Well why should I? IIS Proxy was just thrilled to sit on my IIS web servers and work just fine. As for support, SAP does not give support for Apache, so why should I switch? OK, use SAPNego / Kerberos, it’s safe and secure. I can’t. Why? Because Kerberos does not work over the internet. So what are the real alternatives for external customers to come into your Portal? Certificates? Then I would have to make my customers wait while I verify them and generate a certificated and send it to them? We can’t make customers wait, they will go somewhere else. My opinion is that IISProxy should not have taken away from us without a proper replacement. I know that I am not the only one that is still using it, and I still get e-mails from other Portal admins that need help with it. Would it been that hard to give us a replacement or updated version? The only bug that I knew of was that it was not 100% HTTP 1.1 compliant. The sudden EOL of this put a lot of people in a bind I am sure. Well, this is my two cents.
