Webdispatcher profile for extern requests

Hi Everybody,

Can somebody help me about configuring the Webdispatcher for the access from the internet?

We have EP7 and Web AS java in the Back-End. Our Webdispatcher is installed on another Server in the DMZ. Now we should configure the Webdispatcher to forward the requests to the Web AS and back to the client from the internet (extern). From the intranet it works fine, but how is it from the internet, when you write to access the Web AS via Webdispatcher?

Thanks in Advance for any help!

Kind regards,

Lu Huynh

Hello again,

Here is an example from one of my webdispatcher profile where I need to redirect to

icm/HTTP/redirect_0 = PREFIX=/,,TO=/sap/bc/bsp/sap/zmyBSPapplication/welcome.html

I think you make a confusion between URL redirect and URL rewrite.

The web dispatcher is only capable of URL redirects and no URL rewrites.

You have to use Apache (or other reverse proxy) for URL rewrites.

URL redirect means that when the web dispatcher receives

it will send a REDIRECT command to the user's browser asking it to redirect (connect) to the new URL

It means that the user will see the technical URL on the address line of his browser.

The redirect should work perfectly from the internet.

Best Regards,
