show ssl

show ssl {detail}


Displays the secure socket layer (SSL) configuration.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines

This command displays the following information:
  • HTTPS port configured. This is the port on which the clients will connect.
  • Length of the RSA key (the number of bits used to generate the private key).
  • Basic information about the stored certificate.

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.

If you attempt to use this command before installing the SSH module, the switch displays a message similar to the following:

 SSL Module: Not Installed. 


The switch utilizes the SSH module for SSL functionality. You do not install an SSL module, only the SSH module.


The show ssl command displays the SSL configuration. The following is sample output from this command:

HTTPS Port Number: 443
