Configure HTTP servers

To use HTTP, specify the HTTP settings for both the SecureTransport Edge and SecureTransport Server.

  1. Select one or both of Enable HTTP and Enable HTTPS. If you select Enable HTTPS, by default Enable HSTS will also be selected. You can also deselect Enable HSTS once Enable HTTPS is selected. When HSTS is enabled, a HSTS response will always be sent, redirecting the plain HTTP connection to HTTPS. Enabling HSTS requires a HTTP server restart.
  2. The default HTTP port number is 80 for root installations and 8080 for non-root installations. The default HTTPS port number is 443 for root installations and 8443 for non-root installations. If a default port is in use, SecureTransport displays a message and you must change the Port to use a port number other than the default setting.
  3. If you enabled HTTPS, select an SSL Key Alias from the drop-down list, for example, httpd.
  4. If you enabled HTTPS, to restrict HTTPS connections to FIPS 140-2 Level 1 certified cryptographic libraries, select the Enable FIPS Transfer Mode check box.
  5. Click Start.
