Configures the HTTP server settings used to authenticate HTTP connection to a EX3500 switch

Management access to an EX3500 switch can be enabled/disabled as required using separate interfaces and protocols (HTTP, SSH). Disabling un-used and insecure interfaces and unused management services can dramatically reduce an attack footprint and free resources within an EX3500 management policy.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Service Platforms — NX 95XX, NX 96XX, NX 7510


http [port <1-65535>|secure-port <1-65535>|secure-server|server]


http [port <1-65535>|secure-port <1-65535>|secure-server|server]
http Configures following HTTP settings: port, secure-port, secure-server, and server
port <1-65535> Configures the HTTP port number. This is the port used to connect to the HTTP server.
  • <1-65535> – Specify a value from 1 - 65535. The default port is 80.
secure-port <1-65535> Enables secure HTTP connection over a designated secure port. Ensure that the HTTP secure server is enabled before specifying the secure-server port.
  • <1-65535> – Specify the secure HTTP server port from 1 - 65535. The default port is 443.
secure-server Enables HTTP secure server. This option is disabled by default.
server Enables HTTP server. This option is enabled by default. Consequently, HTTP management access is allowed by default.
