Enabling the HTTPS Service

Enabling the HTTPS Service


You can log in to the web system only after the HTTPS service is enabled. To enhance device security, you can change the port number of the HTTPS server to prevent attackers from accessing the server using the default port number. In addition, you can set a timeout period for an HTTPS connection to prevent waste of web channel resources when no operation is performed in a long time.

By default, the HTTPS IPv4 service is enabled on a device but the HTTPS IPv6 service is disabled, the port number of the HTTPS server is 443, the timeout period of an HTTPS connection is 20 minutes, and login requests from all interfaces are accepted. If you use the HTTPS IPv4 service, default port number and timeout period, and accept login requests from all interfaces, do not perform the following configuration. To use the HTTPS IPv6 service, you need to enable it first.


  1. Run:


    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run:

    http [ ipv6 ] secure-server enable

    The HTTPS service is enabled.

    By default, the HTTPS IPv4 service is enabled on a device while the HTTPS IPv6 service is disabled.

  3. Run:

    http [ ipv6 ] secure-server port port-number

    The port number of the HTTPS server is specified.

    The default port number of the HTTPS server is 443.

  4. Run:

    http server-source -i loopback interface-number

    A loopback interface is specified as the source interface of the HTTPS server.

    Before specifying a source interface for an HTTPS server, ensure that the loopback interface to be specified as the source interface has been created. If the loopback interface is not created, the http server-source command cannot be executed.

  5. Run:

    http timeout timeout

    A timeout period is set for HTTPS connections.

    The default timeout period is 20 minutes.
