To configure secure remote administration, first configure the server to allow remote administration. Create or acquire an SSL certificate, and then consider whether you need implicit or explicit SSL.
Once engaged, SSL encrypts all of your remote administration sessions.
If you set up secure administration over an SSL connection, you will not be able to use the COM interface from remote machines.
To enable SSL during remote administration
In the Administrator, connect to the server, then click the Server tab.
In the left pane, click the Server you want to configure.
In the right pane, click the Remote Administration tab.
Select the Use SSL for remote administration check box.
In the Certificate file path and the Private key file path area, click the open icon to choose the certificate and key.
If you do not already have a certificate and you are administering a local server, you can create a certificate using the Certificate Creation Wizard located on the menu bar under Tools.
You cannot use the Certificate Creation Wizard to create a certificate for a remote server. If you need to create a certificate for a remote machine, you must open the Administrator and use the Certificate Creation Wizard locally on that machine.
Type the Private key passphrase.
