Some of the technicians in your organization use the secure web interface to make some of the configurations changes on the router R68. Today it was reported that a technician could not make a connection to the secure web server. You execute a show run command on R68 and receive the following output:
What must the technician do to make the connection to the secure web interface?
- specify port 443 in the command
- specify port 1025 in the command
- disable the HTTP server first
- enable the secure server
The partial output of the show run command indicates that the port number of the HTTPS interface has been changed to 1025. This is indicted by the presence of this command in the configuration:
ip http secure-port 1025
That is not the default port configuration of 443. Therefore, anyone wishing to connect to the secure server will need to reference the new port number in the command. If you change the HTTPS port number, clients attempting to connect to the HTTPS server must specify the port number in the URL, in this format:
In this syntax, port_number is the HTTPS port number.
It will not help for the technician to reference port 443 in the command, because that is no longer the port number of the secure server. It is now 1025.
It is not required to disable the HTTP server to use the HTTPS server, although it is a best practice to do so.
There is no need to enable the secure server. We can see it has been enabled by the presence of this command in the configuration:
ip http secure-server
