Novell BorderManager 3.9 Support Pack 2
Novell BorderManager 3.9 Support Pack 2 Intern Release 1


When trying to access https sites, browser displays a 504 gateway timeout. Http works fine.
Rules were disable with no effect on the issue. No filters were applied.


Cookie based authentication was enable on proxy.cfg:

[BM Cookie]

This feature was long time ago discarded due to the collateral problems its caused, like the inability to access https sites.
Unfortunately, code was not removed so it can be enable in proxy.cfg.

Once it was turned off, https sites were accessible thru proxy
To turn it off just change the value to 0 on proxy.cfg:

[BM Cookie]

Then unload proxy and load proxy -cc to reread the setting
