Configuring SSL

About this task

If the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) package is installed, SSL-encrypted communication between your web browser and the server where the PureMessage Manager is running is enabled by default. Using SSL is advised whenever confidential information (such as passwords) is transmitted over the internet. However, you must disable SSL if you do not have an SSL-compliant browser or if there is a firewall blocking HTTPS requests from your browser to the PureMessage Manager host.

To change the default SSL encryption settings:

Follow these steps

  1. Change the text boxes in the SSL Support table as required.

    The text boxes are:

    • Enable SSL if available: Use the drop-down list to enable or disable SSL support.
    • Private Key File: Enter the path and filename of the private key .pem file.
    • Certificate File: If the certificate file is the same as the private key file, select Same file as private key. Otherwise, enter the path specifying the location of the certificate file in the text box provided.
  2. Once you have made the required changes, click Save.
