FireDaemon Fusion SSL Integration
Previous Topic  Next Topic 

Once you have obtained an SSL certificate, you must enable SSL within FireDaemon Fusion. By default, FireDaemon Fusion installs to "C:\Program Files (x86)\FireDaemon Fusion" so for the purposes of this Guide, we will use that directory. Take the following steps to enable SSL in FireDaemon Fusion.


Copy your combined certificate file to the installation directory. If you have not yet combined your SSL certificate and RSA private key into one file yet, see the page on obtaining a certificate for instructions on how to do so.


Next, log into FireDaemon Fusion and go to the Options tab. Scroll down until you find the SSL section.


Check the "Use SSL" checkbox. If your SSL certificate has a password enter it in the Password box.



Click Save to save your settings.


Now navigate to the directory where FireDaemon Fusion is installed. Open the file called "FusionServices.xml" with the text editor of your choice.


Near the middle of the file, find:


<Ssl>

<Key></Key>

<Passphrase></Passphrase>

</Ssl>


And replace with:


<Ssl>

<Key>MyCertificateFile.pem</Key>

<Passphrase>InsertPassphraseHashHere</Passphrase>

</Ssl>


MyCertificateFile.pem is the name of the certificate file you previously copied. The Passphrase can only be entered via the Fusion Options tab at this time and is not user generatable. However, if you have a wildcard certificate and have the certificate installed in another installation you can simply copy the hash from another installation. Note that a passphrase is entirely optional and can be omitted. Save this file.


Now restart the "FireDaemon Fusion" service via FireDaemon Pro or the Windows Services applet.


You're done! Visit https://host:port to start accessing FireDaemon Fusion with SSL. If you try going to http while https is enabled (and vice versa), nothing will display; you will just see a blank page or your page will time out.
