Origin server parameters
With this behavior, you can control the primary settings the edge network uses when contacting the origin server to retrieve content. Available settings vary whether you select NetStorage or Your Origin as the origin type.
For more information on origin server parameters, see the "Origin Server" section in Property Manager online help.
||The type of origin that content is retrieved from.|
Note: This field is available only if Origin Type is set to NetStorage.Used to select the NetStorage download domain. This is the name of the domain set up for use with this application on your NetStorage account. Once you assign the download domain, Property Manager automatically assigns the root directory, for example /R3131, so that content can be retrieved from the appropriate location.
|Origin Server Hostname||
It must follow a specific naming convention: origin-original origin hostname
For example, ota-downloads.automotive-company.com
|Used to define the origin-server hostname or IPv4/IPv6 addresses of your origin server so content can be retrieved by the edge network.|
|Forward Host Header||
||Used to select which host header you want the product to pass to your origin server. Referred to as the forward host header because it is the hostname the product forwards to the origin Server in the HTTP HOST request header. The web server on your origin server uses this value to determine what content to send. Typically, the expected host is the same name as the property hostname received in the request, or it can be customized.|
|Cache Key Hostname||
||The cache key is the information the product uses to identify the content in caches. If your application includes at least some cacheable content—the edge network uses keys based on the entire origin server URI path and query string, if such exists.|
|Supports Gzip Compression||Yes/No||Compression is important in optimizing performance. You
can disable this option only if your origin server does not support
delivery of content using Gzip compression; or, if you want to have
content served uncompressed. When this feature is enabled, the product
will send an
|Send True Client IP Header||Yes/No||Used to send a custom header containing the IP address
of the immediate client connecting to the product server. This usually
provides more useful information than the standard
|Origin SSL Certificate Verification|
||These options are revealed if configuring secure delivery (HTTPS).
Origin SSL Certificate Verification is a mechanism for controlling how
your origin server is authenticated. It is intended to prevent
man-in-the-middle attacks, where a malicious entity directs end-user
traffic to the attacker's server instead of the expected origin server.
To confirm that your origin server is, in fact, your origin server, the
product checks that the certificate your origin server sent during the
SSL handshake either exactly matches a certificate, or is signed by a
certificate authority listed in your property.
Important: The settings you choose in Origin SSL Certificate Verification override the default settings for your property.
|Use SNI TLS Extension||Yes/No||Used to send the Server Name Indication (SNI) header in the SSL request to the origin. The SNI header value is the same as the Forward Host Header value.|
|HTTP Port||N/A||The port on your origin server that you want the edge server to connect to for HTTP requests. The standard port is 80.|
|HTTPS Port||N/A||The port on your origin server that you want the edge server to connect to for HTTPS (SSL) requests. The standard port is 443.|
