    Anyone use SSL for Orion web console?


      Is it possible to use SSL for the Orion web console? Is anyone doing this? I also have Netflow and VoIP modules installed (although not using VoIP just yet). I was thinking about publishing the site externally through ISA to certain individuals and was wondering about security.

           I am, and other than a speed hit, it works pretty well.

              Is there anything specific that needs to be done with Orion to enable this? I know I would need a certificate. Are there instructions in any of the Admin guides (I looked but didn't see any). Is it all just done with IIS? (I am not an IIS person by any means)

                  There's nothing specific you need to do to Orion unless you want to run HTTPS on something other than the default port of 443. Just go through the same setup as for any other IIS website and you should be good to go.

                      I buy a VeriSign Certificate for my Orion NPM web Server, but is not working because y have a custom port.


                      when we login to the site, an error is displayed:

                       Orion Website Error

                      An error has occurred with the Orion website.
