Versions:
iChain2.2SP3
NetStorage on NW6.5SP2

This configuration is for setting up NetStorage through iChain as a Multi Homed host.

I set up two Web Accelerators, one for NetStorage and one for oneNet.

This document assumes NetStorage is configured and working internally as you would like. We did not want iFolder to display so I removed that from the NetStorage configuration. To remove iFolder, go to /oneNet/NsAdmin delete the value that is in the iFolder attribute and restart server.

--------NetStore Accelerator---------------------

On Web Server Accelerator page:

Name: NetStore
DNS Name: www.ichain.com
Cookie Domain: ichain.com
Return error if host name sent by browser does not match above DNS name: is selected
Web Server Port: 80
Web Server Address: <IP Address of NetStorage Server>
Accelerator Proxy port: 80
Accelerator IP address: <External IP address of iChain Server>
Enable Authentication: is enabled

Authentication options:

Service Profile=ldap
Forward authentication info to web server: is enabled
Enable Secure Exchange: is enabled
SSL Listening Port: 443
Certificate: Auto (we have a certificate so I selected that)

Secure Exchange Options:

Client <-443->Proxy<-80-> Web Server
Enable secure access between the iChain Proxy and the Origin Web Server: is not enabled
Allow pages to be cached at the browser: is not enabled
Enable multi-homing: is enabled
Path-based multi-homing: is enabled
Sub-path match string: /NetStorage
Remove sub-path from URL: is not enabled

On Access Control Page:

Enable OLAC and Enable Form Fill Authentication: are not selected

On Management Page:

Enable pin list: is selected, entry exists for /NetStore/* and is set to type: Bypass
In ConsoleOne->ISO object properties:
Add resource for the NetStorage web site:
Name=NetStore
URL Prefix=http://www.ichain.com/NetStorage/*
Access: Restricted

--------End NetStore Accelerator-----------------

--------OneNet Accelerator-----------------------

This is almost the same. Just replace NetStore and NetStorage with oneNet:

On Web Server Accelerator page:

Name: oneNet
DNS Name: www.ichain.com
Cookie Domain: ichain.com
Return error if host name sent by browser does not match above DNS name: is selected
Web Server Port: 80
Web Server Address: <IP Address of NetStorage Server>
Accelerator Proxy port: 80
Accelerator IP address: <External IP address of iChain Server>
Enable Authentication: is enabled

Authentication options:

Service Profile=ldap
Forward authentication info to web server: is enabled
Enable Secure Exchange: is enabled
SSL Listening Port: 443
Certificate: Auto (we have a certificate so I selected that)

Secure Exchange Options:

Client<-443->Proxy<-80->Web Server
Enable secure access between the iChain Proxy and the Origin Web Server: is not enabled
Allow pages to be cached at the browser: is not enabled
Enable multi-homing: is enabled
Path-based multi-homing: is enabled
Sub-path match string: /oneNet
Remove sub-path from URL: is not enabled

On Access Control Page:

Enable OLAC and Enable Form Fill Authentication: are not selected

On Management Page:

Enable pin list: is selected, entry exists for '/oneNet/*' and is set to type: Bypass
In ConsoleOne->ISO object properties:
Add resource for the NetStorage web site:
Name=oneNet
URL Prefix=http://www.ichain.com/oneNet/*
Access: Restricted

--------End oneNet Accelerator-------------------------------

Now in web browser go to: https://www.ichain.com/NetStorage/
