SSL Question

Postby mipe10 » Wed Jan 11, 2012 3:26 pm

We have an installation running under the self-contained XSP Web Server. Today we got the question if it's possible to change the settings to use SSL. If I understand this correctly you can only use SSL if you use microsofts IIS - is that correct?

Yes you'll have to switch to IIS if you require SSL. We have a help page for setting up SQL Monitor on IIS although I don't think we go as far as to give advice setting up SSL: ... M_UsingIIS

Note that you don't need to re-install SQL Monitor. Creating a website in IIS Manager and then pointing it at the "C:\\Program Files\\Red Gate\\SQL Monitor 2\\WebSite" directory should do the trick. Also it's possible to have IIS and the XSP servers running simultaneously on the same machine as long as you use different port numbers. So you can continue to use the XSP server whilst configuring IIS.

Hope this helps
