To secure the traffic to your Lansweeper web console, it is recommended to enable SSL and use an SSL certificate from a trusted Certificate Authority. If you installed Lansweeper on IIS Server, the web console will be installed by default under HTTP. You can customize your SSL setup however, by choosing a custom HTTPS port, setting up a custom certificate and forcing HTTPS to be used.
The steps below describe how to enable SSL in IIS Server.
Step 1: Make sure your certificate is installed
Your own certificate should be installed on your server that hosts the Lansweeper web service and should be available under
Server Certificates in IIS. Double-click the IIS Manager home page and under Server Certificates, make sure your own certificate is listed. The default certificate shipped with the Lansweeper installation is an example and should not be used in production environments.
Step 2: Bind the certificate
Lansweeper Web Site in IIS and click
Bindings on the right.
Step 3: Add site bindings
In the dialogue that opens, click
Add and select
https for the type. Fill the port you want to use for this binding on the right, at the bottom of the dialogue select the SSL certificate to be used and click
OK to save the binding.
Your binding should be saved now. You can close the
Site Bindings dialogue, and your Lansweeper web console should be available now via HTTPS.
