If you accept the defaults during the LANSA for iSeries 9.1 install, this creates a HTTP configuration called [email protected]

However, there is a known limitation in IBM that affects all versions whereby you cannot have a "@" sign in the configuration name when SSL is being used. This causes SSL to not function correctly.

IF your HTTP instance name has a '@' in it and you intend using SSL, you will need to rename your instance name to not have an '@' character.

This limitation is documented in section 26.4 Step 3. Create Web Server Configuration of the "LANSA on iSeries - Installation" guide.
