How can I Use httpS in ACT! Syncronization ??

Greetings, Quick question: If the path for enter to ACT! is https://mail.myservice.com:10443/apfw/ - How can I make the "Manage Connection Information"  accept the httpS ???

The 10443 is the SSL port, the TCP Port is 80

Again Many thanks for the help     Smiley Happy

Re: Why removed the S??

When you use https:, ACT! will drop the "s" then add the default SSL port of 443 to end of the address, since it recognizes you are using a secure port. Since you already have your own port number (10443) in the address, the "s" is being dropped without adding 443...but ACT! still receognizes it as a secure port. Please see KB 19469 for additonal information. Please note that it is not really necessary to use a secure port for ACT! Internet Sync, since the sync service already encrypts the data during transmission.

Re: How can I Use httpS in ACT! Syncronization ??

If you are using ACT! Internet Sync Service, then the filepath should end in "ActInternetSync", not "apfw". The Internet Sync Service has its own virtual directory in IIS. We haven't heard of any issues from our developers when using SSL with the internet sync service, so it should work.

Why removed the S??

Correct, understanding what virtual directory: I know that's   http://mail.myservice.com:10443/actinternetsync

Really thee problem is that when I go to: tools - Synchronization Panel - Manage Connection Information - I will enter the complete pathname including the S (https) when I give back to Finish and revise the system Clears (Delete)  my S

Why removed the S??

Let me explain

 

1. After restoring the Remote Database...

 

2.  I go to: tools - Synchronization Panel - Manage Connection Information

 

3. I Write: https://mail.myservice.com:10443/actinternetsync

 

4. I Click on Finish

 

5. When I check again appears: http://mail.myservice.com:10443/actinternetsync
