APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • Security evaluation found that the Android client might try
    connection over HTTP if secure connection initially failed when
    registering the device for the first time.
    
    The change is to only attempt the secure connection by default.
    If this fails the end user is presented the option to attempt
    the connection over unsecure HTTP protocol if desired.
    

Local fix

  • Disable unsecure HTTP on the server.
    

Problem summary

  • The Notes Traveler client for Android devices would by default
    attempt registration of the device over SSL then if failed would
    also attempt over HTTP.  This was done as convenience to the end
    user who often does not know which protocol the customer
    environment users.
    

Problem conclusion

  • With this change the Notes Traveler client will only attempt the
    secure connection by default.  If this fails the end user has to
    explicitly indicate that they wish to connect over the unsecure
    HTTP protocol.
    

Temporary fix

  • This fix is already deployed in Notes Traveler Client 9.0.1.3
    for Android devices on Google Play store.  This level of client
    is also included in Notes Traveler Server 9.0.0.1 IF8 and 9.0.1
    IF7 and later deliveries.
