Testing the SSL Installation

To test whether the eG Manager is SSL-enabled or not, do the following:

  1. Try to access the eG manager with a secured connection (https) by typing https://<eGmanagerIP>:<eGmanagerPort/ in the browser. If you receive a security message that states that the certificate is not from a trusted root certification authority, click Yes to continue to the web page (see Figure 1). This page will appear every time you try to access the web page using https, until you receive a certificate signed by a proper CA such as Verisign or Thawte.

  2. You can view the eG Manager Login page, which indicates that enabling SSL support for the eG installation has been successful.
