Configure SSL Connections to Ops Manager¶
You can encrypt connections from the Monitoring and Backup Agents to Ops Manager and from website clients to the Ops Manager web interface. You can encrypt connections in either of two ways:
- Set up an HTTPS proxy in front of Ops Manager.
- Run the Ops Manager Application over HTTPS, as described here.
By default, Ops Manager uses port
8443 for HTTPS access.
Run the Ops Manager Application Over HTTPS¶
To run the Ops Manager Application over HTTPS, you can configure Ops Manager with the server’s certificate and private key.
