[NAV2015] Configuring SSL for NAV Web Client

As probably most of you, I'm quite an enthusiast when it comes to the possibility of running NAV2015 on any device by using the new apps.

As you may have read in the what’s new blogs on the latest NAV version, everything is routed via the web client by using the tablet.aspx page. There was however one challenge.. I’m not an IIS expert! And how do you set up your webclient to work with SSL/HTTPS?

Thanks to MVP Arend-Jan Kauffmann (@ajkauffmann), I got this How-to: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh167264%28v=nav.71%29.aspx

It brought me a long way, but when restarting the webclient website, I received the following error:

The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070020)

After some more advance google-ing, I found out that there was probably another process that was also using TCP port 443 on my machine. It turned out to be Skype that was preventing the correct starting of the website. After closing Skype, the website started as expected.

Again, just something to keep in mind when working with the NAV2015 apps.
