how to configure Lotus Traveler use alternative SSL port on iPhones/iPods

To provide better security, some customers has a requirement to redirect SSL(443) port to other nonstandart port and disable 80 port.
To do this you should alter Apple.xml file, on a Traveler server (always do a backup of this file before you modify something)

In a host tag you should put FULL path to the servlet, including port number.
you should also add SSL =TRUE, see below:

Host
myserver.vlaad.lv:1234/servlet/traveler
SSL


Then all communications between iPhone and iPhod and Traveler server will be thought the non-standart port.

If anyone has ideas, what can be done in addition to this to make Traveler more secure please write comments. later this can be a separate chapter in Traveler Wiki Page.

Hi. I have the issue you describe at a customer. I am a novice to XML so I am not sure I understand the directions you give. The apple.xml file is full of tags, yet you do not give any...as it does not work for me, perhaps I am not really getting it. Can you elaborate?

Thanks!
