We're probably going to install https in addition to our sftp and ftp usage.
I'd like to set up a redirect from http to https using GAFMT.
How do I do that?

Redirection is handled by the redirection tab under the HTTPS listener. You enable the redirection, give it the Host, Port and Protocol for the redirection, then stop/start your HTTPS listener.

To redirect your HTTP to HTTPS automatically, you'll need to setup an HTTP Listener (port 80) that will that redirects to HTTPS (port 443).

Please contact our support team at [email protected] to request additional information on setting these connections up.
