® Advanced to a Sametime
Proxy server activates the awareness feature that detects when a user is online for users who are in a browser.
Before you begin
- You must have a Sametime Proxy Server installed and configured.
- You must set up Single Sign-On between Sametime Advanced and the Sametime Community Server.
- The Sametime servers that run on IBM WebSphere® Application Server install with SSL enabled, using a self-signed certificate from IBM. For awareness to work, the Sametime Advanced server must use the same certificate that the Proxy Server uses.
About this task
Provide information about the Sametime
Proxy Server by editing the Administrative Settings configuration page of the Sametime
- Log in to the Integrated Solutions Console.
- Click Sametime System Console -> Sametime Servers -> Sametime Advanced Servers.
- In the Sametime Advanced Servers list, click the deployment name of the server with the information that you want to add or change.
- Click the Administrative Settings tab.
- In the Sametime Proxy Server section, specify the host name, port, and protocol for the proxy server you configured. If you have configured the Sametime Proxy Server behind a reverse proxy, use those connection settings here as appropriate.
- Host name
Enter the fully qualified host name of the proxy server. This is the same host name that you provided when you created a deployment plan before installing the proxy server.
For example: sametime_proxy.example.com
The port the proxy server is running on.
Use HTTP for regular connections. Use HTTPS if the Sametime Proxy server is secured with SSL.
Note: If you are configuring your environment with SSL, you should use a public certificate from a Trusted Root Certificate Authority. If you instead configure your environment with self-signed certificates, then the certificate from the Sametime Proxy server must be imported into the browser for awareness on the Sametime Advanced pages to work. You will be prompted to accept the self-signed certificate from the Sametime Advanced server when you visit the page, but you will not be prompted to accept the certificate from the Sametime Proxy server. You can either import this certificate manually, or navigate to the web client on the Sametime Proxy server where you will be prompted to accept it.
Sametime Advanced automatically makes the changes without restarting the server.
