Enabling the HTTPS Service

Enabling the HTTPS Service


Enabling HTTPS service enhances device security, and preserves resources during timeout periods. To log in to the web system in secure mode, bind an SSL policy to the device and enable the HTTPS service. 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 session to prevent waste of web channel resources.

By default, only the HTTPS IPv4 service (not HTTPS IPv6) is enabled on a device. On the HTTPS server, port 443 is used, the timeout period of an HTTPS session is 20 minutes, and login requests from all interfaces are accepted. If you use the HTTPS IPv4 service, default port number, default timeout period, and accept login requests from all interfaces, you only need to bind an SSL policy to the device. To use the HTTPS IPv6 service, you need to enable it first.


  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run http secure-server ssl-policy policy-name

    An SSL policy is bound to the device.

    policy-name specifies the SSL policy created in Configuring an SSL Policy and Loading a Digital Certificate.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 has been created. If the loopback interface is not created, the http server-source command cannot be correctly executed.

  6. Run http timeout timeout

    A timeout period is set for HTTPS sessions.

    The default timeout period is 20 minutes.
