Information in this document applies to any platform.
When Sites is running on Tomcat over http, and is accessed via a SSL-enabled reverse proxy, then it is possible to log into Sites UI via the SSL reverse proxy, but it is not possible to log into Sites application server directly using CatalogMover.
The following error is received in sites.log:
