Using FSI Viewer in SSL environments

When running FSI Viewer on an SSL secured web page you have to make sure that all access takes place via secure connections.

This includes:

  • FSI Viewer files
  • Adobe Flash download location
  • Imaging Server (or NeptuneLabs FSI Cache if being used)


If one or more of the connection above use a non-secured connection (“HTTP” instead of “HTTPS”) a security window like the one in the figure to the right will be presented to the user.
The following examples show the required modifications for FSI Server located at “https://fsi.foo.com” and an FSI Viewer located in the default location of the environment.

Modifications in HTML Code

A total of 4 URLs have to be modified in the HTML code required to integrate FSI Viewer into web pages.

  • The movie parameter of the <object> tag
  • The codebase attribute of the <object> tag
  • The src parameter of the <embed> tag
  • The PLUGINSPAGE attribute of the <embed> tag
