To import certificates to trusted domains on Unix or Linux platforms
- As root, run the following commands:
cp server.crt /etc/ssl/certs
cp server.key /etc/ssl/private
SSL is enabled by default. A self-signed certificate is installed but you should replace it with a valid certificate for your organization. While not recommended, it is possible to disable SSL/TLS encryption entirely.
To disable SSL/TLS encryption
Add the following line to the custom.cfg file:
Note: All HTTPS traffic will be redirected to the HTTP port.
Update any browser bookmarks to specify the HTTP port number.
To customize HTTP and SSL/TLS ports
Add the following lines to the custom.cfg file:
where <port> is any port number not already in use on the machine hosting the server and -Dmcu.port.https is for SSL ports and -Dmcu.port.http is for non-SSL port.
Note: The Command Line utilities and Web Services do not work unless you connect with the non-secure (http) port which allows the utility to discover the secure port.
