Problem

Can Novell Access Manager 3.0 SSL VPN run on TCP port 443?

Solution

Yes, Novell Access Manager 3.0 SSL VPN can run on TCP port 443, depending on how you have deployed it. Novell Access Manager 3.0 SSL VPN can be deployed in three scenarios.

Deployment Scenario 1: Linux Access Gateway and SSL VPN on the Same Server

This deployment scenario consists of a demilitarized zone, where the Linux Access Gateway and SSL VPN are on the same server and the Identity Server is deployed separately.

Deployment Scenario 2: Access Gateway and SSL VPN on Different Servers

This deployment scenario consists of a demilitarized zone, where the Access Gateway, Identity Server and SSL VPN are deployed separately.

7.1.3 Deployment Scenario 3: Novell Identity Server and SSL VPN on the Same Server

This deployment scenario consists of a demilitarized zone, where the Identity Server and SSL VPN are on one machine and the Access Gateway is deployed separately.

Solution

Novell Access Manager 3.0 SSLVPN can run on TCP Port 443, if either deployment scenario 2 or 3 is selected, as the port is free and is not used by any other process.

Novell Access Manager 3.0 SSLVPN cannot run on TCP port 443, if the deployment scenario 1 is selected, as the port is used by the Access Gateway for HTTPS.
