MS-SSTP with SSL termination

Post by oneb1t » Fri May 21, 2021 10:44 am

Hello
is it possible to run softether MS-SSTP under nginx SSL termination? (so basically disable SSL on SSTP)

I want to have following setup:
NGINX + LetsEncrypt cert -> softether docker MS-SSTPT without TLS

I want to have it this way to have automatic certificate regeneration

Is it somehow possible to achieve this?
Thanks

You can't do SSTP without TLS. You can do two separate TLS though.
In fact, to realize automatic certificate renewal you can use certbot deploy hook + softether command line, without the need for nginx. But that would need good shell script knowledge.

So that means I can use nginx with automatic letsencrypt (i already have that working for other things in our infrastructure) and then softether with some invalid certificate? And then ignore that certificate somehow inside nginx configuration? Will it work like that?

I don't know how to do it with nginx. Basically it needs to do MITM.
