Problem: Force SSL login on GroupWise WebAccess with out filters or URL blocking

Solution: Edit the Login.htt template located in the tomcat\33\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes\com\novell\webaccess\templates\frames folder

In the javascript section add the following code just before the function setFocus() line.

if ((self.location.href) == "http://<<your hostname here>>/servlet/webacc"){
window.location = "https://<<your hostname here>>/servlet/webacc"

The user could put in the IP address but you can add the line again with the ipaddress if you want.

I have not tried it with the Wireless side but it should work there too.
