This page provides instructions for configuring SSL in IIS Express so that you can use a custom certificate for the Lansweeper web console.
Recent Lansweeper releases automatically set up SSL for you if you install the console under IIS Express, the default web server. If you update your Lansweeper installation from an older release, SSL is automatically set up as well. You can customize your SSL setup however, by choosing a custom HTTPS port, setting up a custom certificate and/or forcing HTTPS.
To customize your SSL setup if your console is running under IIS Express (the default web server), do the following:
Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\IISexpress\iisexpress.configwith Notepad or another text editor, perform a search for "bindingInformation" and replace your current HTTP and HTTPS ports with custom (free) ports of your choice.
Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\IISexpress\IISExpressSvc.exe.configwith Notepad or another text editor, search for "UseCustomSSLCertificate" and set it to 1.
If your certificate is missing from any of these, add it:
https://<IP or name of the machine hosting your console>:<HTTPS port number>/
Https: Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Service\ResetWebUserRoles.exe
