The Gateway Admin Portlet has the following tabs:
Use this tab to configure the Rewriter settings.
If this option is enabled, all URLs are rewritten. If this option is disabled, only intranet URLs are rewritten. Intranet URLs are the URLs with hosts that are in the domains or subdomains listed in the Proxies for Domains and Subdomains list under the Proxy tab. This option is disabled by default.
This list indicates URLs that will not be rewritten even when Rewriting of All URIs is enabled. Use the Add Row and Delete Row buttons to add URLs to the list and remove URLs from this list.
Indicates which RuleSet to apply for a particular URL. You can use the Add Row button to add an URI and a RuleSet for it. Similarly, you can use the Delete Row button to delete a row corresponding to a URI and a RuleSet. The default Rulesets are, inotes_ruleset, exchange_2000sp3_owa_ruleset, exchange_2003_owa_ruleset, sap_portal_ruleset, iplanet_mail_ruleset, and default_gateway_ruleset.
Indicates which parser to use for a particular MIME type. You can use the Add Row and Delete Row tabs to add and delete rows for a parser and its associated MIME types.
Indicates which parser to use for a resource with a particular extension. You can use the Add Row and Delete Row tabs to add and delete rows for a parser and its associated URIs.
Use this tab to manage the Rewriter rulesets. For information on how to write a Rewriter ruleset, see Chapter 4, Working with Rewriter.
Use this tab to configure the proxy settings of the Gateway.
Use a proxy server to connect to origin servers if this flag is enabled. This option is disabled by default.
The proxy server to use for an origin server in the specified domain and subdomain. If a proxy is not specified for a given domain and subdomain, or if the Use Proxy option is disabled, a direct connection will be made. The entries in this list are also used by the Rewriter. The Rewriter rewrites all URLs whose domains match the domains listed in this list.
Specify the user name and password required for the Gateway to authenticate to a specified proxy server, if the proxy server requires authentication to access some or all the sites.
Use this tab to configure the miscellaneous Gateway settings.
The default domains are useful when URLs contain only the host names without the domain and subdomain. In this case, the Gateway assumes that the host names are in the default domain list and proceeds accordingly.
This field indicates the URL of the destination page to show if the Gateway is accessed without a destination being specified. If this attribute is not set, a page with a text field is shown.
The cookies set by origin servers are usually transformed to act as if they were set by the Gateway when sending the response to the web clients. The cookies specified in this list are forwarded to the web clients unchanged. This option is useful for SSO cookies when a policy agent used to protect the Gateway is expected from the SSO server.
