Add the Next Hop Based on the Host Header Filter

You must add the RealPresence Web Suite Experience Portal as a next hop before you can configure an HTTP tunnel proxy.

Use the Host header filter when adding a next hop to various HTTPS application servers, including the RealPresence Web Suite Experience Portal. You can also add a next hop to the RealPresence Web Suite Services Portal but should do so only if you want SIP guest clients to access the service from outside the firewall.

CAUTION: If you add host header next hops, you must specify the host FQDNs as Subject Alternative Names (SANs) in the Certificate Signing Request for the RealPresence DMA system.
