Running ChronoScan Web Server through a Reverse Proxy (Helicon APE)

 
To solve limitations of the IIS reverse proxy we recommend to install and buy Helicon APE reverse proxy utility. It is faster and gives more flexibility to the server configuration.
 
1 - Install Helicon APE extension:
 
 
2 - Reverse proxy configuration examples:
 
There are two options, the first one allows to include Active directory user information:
 
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} / [OR]   ## where / is your mounting point
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} (.+)
RewriteProxy .? http://wciserver:10000%1 [A]
 
The second option is simplest but don't include Active directory user information:
 
ProxyPass /server1/ http://wciserver1:10000%1
ProxyPass /server2/ http://wciserver2:10000%1
 
 
3 - Authorithing Windows user to a ChronoScan user:
 
To asign an Windows user to a ChronoScan user set the chronoscan user variable named "uservar.LDAP_USER_AUTH", on the edit user window, to the windows user name. ChronoScan will use APE variables to authenticate the user.
