enable web https

enable web https


Enables secure socket layer (SSL) access to the switch on the default port (443).

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

Use this command to allow users to connect using a more secure HTTPS connection.

Similar to SSH2, before you can use any SSL commands, you must first download and install the separate Extreme Networks SSH software module (ssh.xmod). This additional module allows you to configure both SSH2 and SSL on the switch. SSL is packaged with the SSH module; therefore, if you do not install the module, you are unable to configure SSL. If you try to execute SSL commands without installing the module first, the switch notifies you to download and install the module. To install the module, see the instructions in Software Upgrade and Boot Options in the ExtremeXOS User Guide.

To use secure HTTP access (HTTPS) for web-based login connections, you must specify HTTPS as the protocol when configuring the redirect URL. For more information about configuring the redirect URL, see the configure netlogin redirect-page command.

Prior to ExtremeXOS 11.2, the SSH module did not include SSL. To use SSL, you must download and install the current SSH module.

If you are currently running SSH with ExtremeXOS 11.0 or 11.1, and you want to use SSL for secure HTTPS web-based login, you must upgrade your core software image to ExtremeXOS 11.2 or later, install the SSH module that works in concert with that core software image, and reboot the switch.


The following command enables SSL on the default port:

enable web https


This command was first available in the ExtremeXOS 11.2 and supported with the SSH module.
