[solved] 401 behind reverse proxy


We have some trouble getting sunstone working behind a reverse proxy. If we don’t check the box “Keep me logged in” we get disconnected pretty quickely (401 errors in sunstone log). If we check this box, everything works fine (except VNC but there is an other thread about this problem).

Any idea why? What does this box do?

There can be several things happening:

  • Server time is incorrect, configure ntp

  • Client time is incorrect

  • There are multiple sunstone instances, this happens with apache passenger, unicorn, etc. You should use memcache for sessions in this case

Hi Javi,

thanks again, we forget to set the ntpd on the reverse proxy!
