I have done the APS turnkey installation, generated a SSL key and imported it into my browser. The Web access runs fine over https without any warning or error.
If I try to connect with Acrobat 8 the connect works fine but the user name password authentifikation fails. I get the error: "No connection to https://[server]:8443 - Username or password wrong" (Translated, I have a German Acrobat).
More strange for me the output in the Jrun log for the authentifikation try:
2006-11-08 15:33:24,080 INFO [com.adobe.edc.server.businesslogic.license.LicenseManagerBean] $$$/server/service/logging/msg.LogSvcInit=Logger com.adobe.edc.server.businesslogic.license.LicenseManagerBean initialized

2006-11-08 15:33:24,267 INFO [STDOUT] **************Response is = success
The error message is different if use a valid or invalid password. Here are screen shots:
The test with the Acrobat 7 pointed me to the right direction. This version displayed the following error message: "Administrators are not allowed to perform this action!". Next time I tried it with an external User. This works in Acrobat 7.0 and 8.0!
Conclusion: Acrobat 8.0 (en + de) shows the wrong error message if a Administrator tries to connect to a APS.
In order for Acrobat to connect to Policy Server, you should first test that you can hit the server in IE WITHOUT getting any warning messages. In order to connect to a server via HTTPS without getting warning messages using the IP then you would have to create the SSL certificate using the machines IP instead of the host name. If you do this, then yes, you would be able to connect from Acrobat to Policy Server using the IP.
Does Acrobat/Reader have to connect to the Policy server every time the PDF is opened? For example, if I have a policy that will never expired, then can I skip the process of checking with the Policy server?
Currently in Reader 7.0.9, if I open a policy protected PDF (the policy never expired), I got a error message saying "This computer must be connected to the network in order to open this document". Is there any way to avoid this message? Basically I don't want Reader to check with Policy server because the policy in the PDF will never expired.
I have a problem with the conection with Acrobat 8.0, the path in https://name.enterprise.com:8443/edc/Main.do, but how can i do for that "/edc/Main.do" work into Acrobat 8.0, when it construct the link only show https://name.enterprise.com:8443 and no connect..?
Si, me dice que no puede conectar al servicio, tiene algo que ver que el path completo sea tenga el /edc/Main.do despues del puerto ? o Acrobat debería reconocerlo automaticamente solo con colocar el name.enterprise.com y el puerto 8443
Te tiene que andar poniendo solamente en Server Name el dominio de tu servidor (ej:name.enterprise.com -sin https:// que lo agrega solo) y en Port el puerto (ej:8443). Así debería conectarse.
Ojo que no podes usar credenciales de administrador para loguearte desde Acrobat ;-)
No necesariamente, podés dar de alta un usuario externo via la interfase de administración del policy.
Vas a la solapa External Users y te invitás a vos misma como usario externo. Esto va a generar un email que te va a llegar a tu casilla de correo y desde allí inicias el circuito.
Luego te logueas desde Acrobat con esas credenciales...
Has anyone solved this problem? I keep receiving an error when connecting from Acrobat 8 to Policy Server. I have created the keystore and cert and when I view the page in IE 6 and firefox I can browse the https://myIP:8443 with no problem.
1. You have to install your certificate in IE (default browser)
2. In your keystore CN vale must be equal to your IP.
e.g if your ip is 192.168.1.100 then CN = 192.168.1.100
3. In Web console > Configuration > Server Configuration change your Base Url: to https://myIP:8443
4. Administrators are not allowed to connect through acrobat
5 Try connect with your internal user(LDAP), if not external user
Hope this helps

The most common cause of this problem is SSL configuration. However, if you are able to connect via IE and (this is important) do not receive any warnings about the SSL certificate, then the SSL configuration should be OK. You, of course, also need to make sure that the hostname you configure with Policy Server exactly matches the hostname in the certificate.
Assuming that is all good, then the next question is: how have you configurated authentication? I'm assuming you can login to the Policy Server Web Console (https://myIP:8443/edc/Main.do) as a user without any problems? Note that we do not allow administrative accounts (e.g., Administrator) to login to Acrobat/Reader, so be sure to login as a non-administrator.
If this all looks good and you are still seeing the problem, can you post your server log file?
I am using IE 7 from on a laptop that is not the machine that policy server is installed on. When i enter the IP https://<myIP>:8443 I get an error that says Internet Explorer cannot display the web page. There is a More information link on the page and it says to check that ssl and tls and are enabled in internet options. I have these enabled. If I connect to the same IP with firefox on the same laptop there is no problems. Any thoughts?
Are you running Vista on your laptop? It has become more picky about SSL certificates that it will accept. For example, it will not accept SSL certificates generated with DSA keys, I believe -- the SSL cert must use RSA. Is this the machine that Acrobat is running on?
