Fall-thru Path for SSL


It is possible to include HTML tags within your DDS that cause the browser to display a link, an image, or another object on the screen with your 5250 data. This includes Webulator/400 menu images, background images, as well as the keyboard plugin. These objects can provide information, increase ease-of-use, and make your Webulator screen more attractive. They are served to the browser by an HTTP server that is separate from Webulator/400 - usually either Commerce Server/400 or one of the IBM Internet Connection Secure Servers. When the Webulator/400 screen is served via SSL, the objects that are to be included on the same browser page must also be served securely via SSL. The Fall-thru Path for SSL value is used to assist Webulator/400 in redirecting the request for these objects for them to be served securely via SSL by the external server . This value is a URL path that points to that secure HTTP server. In the case of Commerce Server/400, this might contain www.secureservername.com. The Fall-thru Path for HTTP value is also used by Webulator/400 to redirect requests for objects that are to be served via HTTP (not secure).
