 += GroupWise Webaccess SSL  =
 +Although you can set up the webserver to only listen to port 443 instead of both 80 and 443 (as showed in BorderManagerConfig),​ there is also a way to redirect all requests on port 80 to port 443. You have to know that SSL is entirely dependant on the webserver. Groupwise webaccess itself is just a collection of web pages that the webserver sends to the browser, so if SSL is required the webserver itself needs to be set up to use SSL. The procedure to do this depends on the webserver in use. In most cases groupwise webaccess is setup with apache. \\

 +== Apache SSL Redirect ==
 +With Apache you can use an additional module called mod_rewrite. You need to make the following changes in the SYS:​\APACHE\CONF\GWAPACHE.CONF (GW 6.0) or SYS:​\APACHE2\CONF\HTTPD.CONF (GW 6.5 en 7) file. 
 +Uncomment the following line:
 +LoadModule rewrite_module modules/​rewrite.nlm
 +Now add the following lines to the end of the file as they appear below (no modification needed). ​ This will cause all requests on port 80 to {{{/​servlet/​webacc}}} to be redirected to {{{https://​servername/​url}}}.
 +<​VirtualHost _default_:​80>​
 +      RewriteEngine On
 +      RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^\/​servlet\/​webacc
 +      RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://​%{SERVER_NAME}/​$1 [L,R]
 +For GroupWise 7:
 +RewriteEngine On
 +RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^\/​gw\/​webacc
 +RewriteRule ^/(.*) https://​%{SERVER_NAME}/​$1 [L,R]
 +</​code> ​
 +Restart apache after the file has been saved:
