I'm trying to enable HTTPS on my VPRO enabled server.
HTTP (on port 16992) runs without problems but I think it is not a good idea holding a port always open on my router (directly connected to internet) and sending password on an unsecured connection.
Basically this is my actual configuration (host side):
- a router/firewall directly connected to WAN/Internet with port-forwarding enabled on port 16992 (this port is always open)
- AMT enabled / TLS disabled on host computer (this computer is directly connected to the router)
- Linux with MEI driver and LMS correctly installed (also ACUConfig is installed on linux box)
- Virtualbox (with Windows 8) installed on my linux box
- OpenMDTK installed in Win8/virtualbox (correctly working and connecting)
- ACUWizard installed in Win8/virtualbox (working but unable to connect because peraphs it needs MEI and LMS for Windows)
Mi only need is to enable HTTPS port 16993 on AMT host in way to connect to the host through a secured connection. To do this, I read it is necessary to enable TLS but I'm very know-nothing about certificates and cryptography (public and private keys etc.) so I need some step-by-step help.
I think that if I will be able to connect via HTTPS I could disable portforwarding on port 16922 and enable it on port 16993 in way to better protect my system. Am I right?
