How to configure HTTP access to the management GUI from the command line

Solution

Overview

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.
