Creating a Secure HTTPS Listener

This section describes the process that the server owner uses to configure an enterprise server to use SSL. In this tutorial, you create an HTTPS version of the HTTP Echo listener. You will use this listener in the stage: Interpreting a Security Alert

  1. In ESCWA, click NATIVE.
  2. In the navigation pane, click Directory Servers > Default.
  3. In the REGION AND SERVER LIST, ensure that ESDEMO has a status of stopped.
  4. In the navigation pane, click ESDEMO.
  5. Click GENERAL > Listener.
  6. Expand Communications Process 1 so you can see all the listeners.
  7. Click * NEW LISTENER to create a listener for HTTPS.
  8. Under LISTENER PROPERTIES, in the Name field, type HTTPS Echo.
  9. In the Hostname or IP Address field, type *.
  10. In the Port field, type 9443

    Although you can use port 443, it might already be in use. For example, IIS listens by default on port 443. If you want to use port 443, you can check whether it is in use, by running the following command:

    netstat -an | findstr 443
  11. To specify that this listener will be a simple response to HTTP requests, under Conversation Type, click Custom and type http-echo in the field alongside.
  12. In the Description field, type Simple secure HTTP test.
  13. Click SAVE.

    The new HTTPS Echo listener is displayed under Communications Process 1.
