Article Information

This article applies to the following ZCS versions.
  ZCS 4.5 Article  ZCS 4.5

NOTE: 5.0+ has a zmtlsctl redirect mode.

This will allow initial connections over http, but always redirect them to https. If you just want to force authentication to occur over https, just use zmtlsctl mixed.

Edit Login.jsp

This prevents the server from redirecting back to http if the initial connection is http.

On each mailbox node, in the file /opt/zimbra/tomcat/webapps/zimbra/public/Login.jsp, comment out this statement:

qs = emptyQs? "?initMode=" + currentProto: qs + "&initMode=" +
currentProto;

In other words, make it look like this:

//qs = emptyQs? "?initMode=" + currentProto: qs + "&initMode=" +
//currentProto;

Set mixed mode

This configures the server to accept both http and https connections.

su - zimbra
zmtlsctl mixed
tomcat restart

Note that this is an attempt at a workaround for the problem addressed in Bug 7631, which is scheduled to be fixed in ZCS 5.0.
