7019320: Enabling SSL for the Reload Web Interface

This document (7019320) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.

Environment

Reload (all version)

Situation

How do I enable SSL for the Reload web interface? And, can a customer use its own SSL certificate for this?

Resolution

Open the Reload administration console to configure Reload to use SSL.

Select:System (Administer System) | Web (Web Administation Preferences) | SSL (SSL for Daemon HTTP Page:). This option is set to [ Disabled ] by default. Press ENTER to toggle it to [ Enabled ].

Open the web interface by pointing to the Reload server’s HTTPS IP or DNS name address followed by its port, which by default is “5555”.

An example would be: https://10.1.1.5:5555

It is not possible to use a custom SSL certificate as the certificate is hard-coded into Reload.
