How to configure HTTP access to the management GUI from the command line
Last Updated May 13, 2017
By default, access to the ProxySG Management GUI is performed using the encrypted HTTPS protocol (over port 8082). There are a number of occasions where access is required using the unencrypted HTTP protocol. For instance:
To diagnose problems with the GUI console where it is necessary to produce a packet capture of the GUI traffic. (Taking a packet capture of the default HTTPS GUI will only capture encrypted traffic, which cannot be read).
HTTPS access has stopped working and you want to see if HTTP access is still possible. If so, this could allow the problem to be investigated further.
The HTTP console (using port 8081) is configured but disabled by default. The console commands below show how to view the current status, enable the console and then disable the console.
ProxySG#conf t Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CTRL-Z. ProxySG#(config)management-services ProxySG#(config management-services)edit http-console ProxySG#(config HTTP-Console)view Service Name: HTTP-Console Service: HTTP-Console Destination IP Port Range <All> 8081 Disabled
ProxySG#(config HTTP-Console)enable all 8081 ok ProxySG#(config HTTP-Console)view Service Name: HTTP-Console Service: HTTP-Console Destination IP Port Range <All> 8081 Enabled
ProxySG#(config HTTP-Console)disable all 8081 ok ProxySG#(config HTTP-Console)view Service Name: HTTP-Console Service: HTTP-Console Destination IP Port Range <All> 8081 Disabled
When enabled, the GUI can then be accessed using http://x.x.x.x:8081.
For security reasons, the HTTP GUI should only be enabled for the duration of the required testing.
