Enabling Remote Users to Access the C-Web Interface

 

You can make the C-Web interface accessible to remote users through secure HTTP (HTTPS) or HTTP. You can configure access through the C-Web interface or by using the SRC CLI.

Accessing the C-Web Interface Through Secure HTTP

Before you configure access to the C-Web interface through HTTPS, obtain a digital security certificate on the system.

See Digital Certificates Overview.

To make the C-Web interface accessible to remote users through HTTPS:

  1. Click Configure, expand System>Services>Web Management, and then click HTTPS.

    The HTTP pane appears.

  2. Click Create.

  3. To configure HTTPS for an Ethernet port:

    1. Select the Ethernet port from the list.

    2. To configure a TCP port, type the value in the Port box, and click Apply.

  4. To configure HTTPS for an interface:

    1. Type a list of incoming network interfaces in the Interface box.

    2. To configure a TCP port, type the value in the Port box, and click Apply.

Accessing the C-Web Interface Through HTTP

Although you can configure access to the C-Web interface through HTTP rather than HTTPS, be aware of the following restrictions:

  • An HTTP connection is not secure. At login, the password is sent in clear text across the network and could be intercepted.

  • If you use the redirect server, you must change the port that the C-Web interface uses from the default port, 80. If the redirect server is enabled, and the C-Web interface is configured to use HTTP on port 80, the redirect server will intercept traffic destined for the C-Web interface.

To make the C-Web interface accessible to remote users through HTTP:

  1. Click Configure, expand System>Services>Web Management, and then click HTTP.

    The HTTP pane appears.

  2. Click Create.

  3. To configure HTTP for an Ethernet port:

    1. Select the Ethernet port from the list.

    2. To configure a TCP port, type the value in the Port box, and click Apply.

  4. To configure HTTP for an interface:

    1. Type a list of incoming network interfaces in the Interface box.

    2. To configure a TCP port, type the value in the Port box, and click Apply.
