- ID 1549 - Nprinting: Support for Connection to QlikView Cluster when certificate communication is used in QlikView Server
There is NO workaround to keep using the HTTPS protocol in the Address field of the NPrinting Connection to the QlikView Cluster.
The installation of server certificates will NOT allow the use of HTTPS in the Address field of NPrinting Connection.
You have to use HTTP in the Address field of NPrinting Connection.
The QlikView Server must be set to use QlikView Administrators group for communication in order for it to work normally.
The data gained from QMS via the URL http://servername:4799/QMS/Service contains just the list of QVPs of the QV server in the QMC, which isn't sensitive.
When you then connect to one of the QlikView Servers in the cluster with the QVP protocol instead of connecting to the QlikView Cluster, the connection is completely secure because the QlikViewProtocol (QVP) is encrypted.
In Summary, NPrinting connection to QV cluster cannot be changed to https but is also not a security risk as qvp is encrypted.
