HTTPS - does it work - try again

Hi,

This time I’ll finish the message

I’ve set up

support: support rt

support: support kbailey nstone gpeter

rt: “|/usr/bin/rt-mailgate --queue support --action correspond --url
http://cyclone.example.com/rt

in the aliases file.

RT version is:

ii request-tracker3.6 3.6.1-4

I’d like to use https://cyclone.example.com/rt

for the web address as it’s more secure. Currently we haven’t set up a
certificate on that address.

Does HTTPS work with RT? I had set this up but it didn’t seem to work
properly.

Cheers,

It isn’t clear to me how you can have httpd enabled without a
certificate.

I assume you’re asking about https + rt-mailgate
Install Net::SSLeay and the perl library that rt-mailgate uses will be
able to connect to an https server.
If you add --debug to your rt-mailgate command, you may get useful
info about why it is failing for you

The server has a self-signed certificate - which means it has to be OK’d
when using a browser.

Thanks for that.

On Debian I added the package

libio-socket-ssl-perl

and the rt-mailgate is working.
