Configure Internet Explorer to use SSL/TSL connection

  1. Open Internet Explorer on a machine connected to your Kerberos realm (AXWAY.COM).
  2. Click Tools > Internet Options.
  3. On the Security tab, click Local Intranet > Sites > Advanced.
  4. In Add this website to the zone, enter your host name (https://gateway.axway.com), and click Add. You do not have to enter the port or the relative path, and you can use wildcards for the host name (https://*.axway.com).
  5. Note   Ensure the host name matches the SPN you mapped to the user account in Active Directory. The SPN must also match the host name the client browser authenticating to API Gateway specifies in the URL. See Map an SPN to the user account.
