SSL Support in Gold 4.xx

For discussion of the Poker Mavens server module and other administration topics

Re: SSL Support in Gold 4.xx

I deleted the certificates in windows server, and there was also a port binding (https to port 443) that I removed that was added when installing the certificate via IIS.
but none of this fixed the issue.

I believe this is being caused by our custom script "shell" we use for admin, no longer being able to connect to mavens. The admin code is on same windows server, but I think I need to add the new certs on the window server, so mavens knows they are allowed...

(my apologies for being ignorant on much of this, as I'm self teaching myself as I go)

If you want your IIS web server to also support SSL then you will need to install your cert there as well. But that's completely independent of SSL used by Poker Mavens. Do you have the OpenSSL files saved to the Poker Mavens program folder (where PMServer.exe is installed)? Specifically libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll. They should be in C:\Program Files (x86)\Briggs Softworks\Poker Mavens 5\.

And if you're running the 64-bit version of Poker Mavens you must use these: http://www.briggsoft.com/download/OpenSSL64.zip
For the 32-bit version you must use these: http://www.briggsoft.com/download/OpenSSL.zip

I do have the OpenSSL files saved to the PMserver.exe folder.
I believe that I need to install the SSL in the IIS web server too.
I'll have to experiment, but I think the same SSL cert will work there as well since it all resolves to the same web address.

Thanks for your help, I'll post a final solution when I get it straightened out, in case anyone else can learn from my mistakes.

If you can load your site directly via HTTPS (e.g., https://www.example.com:8087) then you'll know it's working correctly in Poker Mavens.

Still struggling with this,mainly because of the several pieces involved. so let me back up and ask a general question;
Does Poker Mavens have use the SSL within mavens to be encrypted, or can the SSL encryption be provided at the domain level of the the windows server?
We need to domain level SSL for other parts of our site, but obviously we also need to mavens to be encrypted.

The only thing I know about the internals is that I'm using Indy Socket components and those rely on those OpenSSL files. Poker Mavens is its own independent web server so it doesn't care about what is going on with IIS, Apache, or any other web server on your system.

We have the poker shell in an Iframe with a "skin" around it for various player management controls. It's the call from the skin to get the site that appears to be not working.
I think it's simply mismatched "http" vs "https" somewhere in the skin code. But unfortunately i can only change that code through my developer, so I'm still trying to see if this may be the case.

That's probably it because once you enable SSL in Poker Mavens you cannot access it via http. It has to be https.
