AEM SSL over default port (4502)

Avatar

Level 2

Hey community, 

I am curious if anyone has enabled SSL over the default ports (ie: 4502/4503).  I am setting up SSL and I am able to configure SSL over non default ports (ie: 4542/4543) but not with the default ports.  Has anyone else encountered this?  And if so, was there a workaround?

Thanks

You definitely can enable SSL over the default ports.  However, I generally discourage it. It's generally better to just hide the plaintext ports with a local firewall or security groups and just have AEM talk over an SSL port.  Reason for this is that if anything goes wrong with your cert or with AEM being able to decrypt or work with your cert, then suddenly you can't access the AEM UI.  And yes, I've done this to myself.

Hi @jarvis_cl_lukow ,

Did you create folder under  /etc/map. 
http node of type sling:folder. - Under that create a node
Name – localhost.4502


If still facing issue better check your log.
