You can install CA signed SSL certificate to 2N Access Commander web page, so anyone accessing its website will not receive security warning in web browser.

To do so, certain aspects needs to be met.

  • You need domain name for web page of Access Commander so instead of accessing it via IP address you can use name address
  • You need to generate certificate for domain name of Access Commander and you need some Certification Authority to sign it, making it trusted.

How to install certificates

Once you receive signed certificate from CA, you need to do following steps

  • copy certificates for your domain to linux of Access Commander virtual machine, for example to folder /etc/apache2/ssl/
    You should have following 3 files: original.crt, private.key and signedoriginal.crt
  • modify file /etc/apache2/sites-available/2nAC.conf to match new certificates:
    - change domain name to your domain, for example
    ServerName AccessCommander.2n
    to
    ServerName accesscommander.local.com
    where accesscommander.local.com is name address you have in your certificate and you will use to access Access Commander
  • change following link of certificate files to location of your files, for example:

    SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/original.crt

    SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/private.key

    SSLCACertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/signedoriginal.crt

  • Once you save your changes, please run following command to restart apache2 server:

    service apache2 restart

So when you now access site accesscommander.local.com, you will get information that communication is secured:
