Option HttpsHyphens

Option HttpsHyphens specifies that hostnames used with https in proxy by host name with a wildcard certificate should have their periods changed to hyphens. For example, https:/ / www.somedb.com might be changed to https:/ / www-somedb-com.ezproxy.yourlib.org. This is the default behavior for EZproxy in this scenario.

Option NoHttpsHyphens specifies that hostnames used with https in proxy by hostname with a wildcard certificate should not have all periods changed to hyphens. For example, https:/ / www.somedb.com might become https:/ / www.somedb.com.ezproxy.yourlib.org. Disabling the transformation of periods to hyphens causes browser warnings. This option should only be employed if a web site refuses to proxy correctly when the periods are transformed to hyphens.

Option HttpsHyphens is a repeatable position-dependent directive that follows database stanzas until overwritten.
