Web Interface

Web Interface

This tab contains settings of the Apache Web server. It allows you to enable/disable HTTP/HTTPS access to the Web interface and change SSL certificates or SSL private key files.

The Web Interface Mode section contains the following settings:

  • Host – is a Host name or host IP address used to access the system Web interface. If you set Host value equal to $AUTO, then host IP used to access the system Web interface will be detected automatically

  • Mode check boxes:

    • Insecure – enable/disable access to the Web interface via HTTP protocol

    • Secure – enable/disable access to the Web interface via HTTPS protocol

  • HTTP port – allows you to bind Apache Web server to specific HTTP port (8084 by default)

  • HTTPS port – allows you to bind Apache Web server to specific HTTPS port (443 by default)

The Password Protection section allows to protect Web interface with password. The password can be changed on Access Password page. If you select the checkbox to enforce the protection, you will be asked for the password once the Web interface is opened in the browser or if navigating the Report tab in the client GUI.

The SSL Certificates section contains path to the server certificate, path to the private key, path to the CA certificate and path to the chain certificate file. Self signed IPHost Network Monitor certificate is used by default. It is recommended to replace default certificate and private key with your own ones.

Note: If you change any setting in Web Interface Mode section or SSL Certificates section, the Apache Web server configuration is updated accordingly and Web server will be restarted.
