  3. In the menu bar, select Firewall.
  4. Click on the domain name that the firewall is configured on, and then select Settings.
  5. Select Security
  6. Make sure the option Force passing the hostname via TLS/SSL is selected and then select Save Advanced Security Options.

It may take up to 5 minutes for these changes to take place.
