HTTPS settings

Use HTTPS Only

  • Activate HTTPS only checkbox to automatically redirect HTTP requests to HTTPS
  • WARNING: In such configuration, remote agents will not be able to connect if you don't add the server certificate into their truststore (unless using a certificate coming from a trusted authority)

Change HTTPS port

  • Redpeaks HTTPS port number is set 8443 by default
  • If you are running on Linux:
    • Set the new HTTPS port in “HTTPS redirection port” field
    • Using port 443 is not always possible: To use ports below 1024 requiers to grant specific authorizations.
    • A simple workaround is to create a routing rule such as: iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -p tcp –dport 443 -j REDIRECT –to-ports 8443
    • Restart the promonitor service from Maintenance menu
  • If you are running on Windows:
    • Set the new HTTPS port in “HTTPS redirection port” field
    • Run [PRO_MONITOR_HOME]\bin\pro_monitorw.exe
    • Open Java tab
    • Change -Dhttp.port.ssl value to the new port number
    • Restart the promonitor service



  • The default certificate embbeded with the server will not work in Multi-instance mode: agents will refuse the connection because the certificate is not bound to server IP address
  • In this case, you must generate a self signed certificate and bind it to the local IP
  • Generated certificates will be stored in the keystore
  • Redpeaks keystore is located in the certificates/.keystore file of Redpeaks install folder

Generating a certificate

  • The default certificate for Redpeaks is using localhost as common name.
  • If you want to connect to the promonitor server with HTTPS by using its hostname, you need to install or create a certificate for his hostname

Self signed certificate:

  • You can generate an autosigned certificate by clicking on “Generate a self-signed certificate”
  • Enter the domain name or the IP address of your instance and save

Certificates from a trusted authority

  • In order to install this certificate, refere the manual installation below

Downloading and installing a certificate from a remote service

* There are several reasons why you might need to register self signed certificates for secure connections:

  • Secure LDAP
  • Secure plugin
  • Secure primary server (for agents)
  • Secure SAPControl or portal connection
  • Use the import certificate button to fetch and trust certificates from reachable sites.
  • Simply click on Download and install a self-signed certificate
  • Enter the URL of the server holding the certificate you want to import as suche hostname:port (use 443 for most cases)
  • Enter the Common Name of the certificate (If you don't know the common name, use your browser to visualize the certificate parameters, it is listed there.)

Installing a certificate manually

  • Copy the certificate file in CER format in [PRO_MONITOR_HOME]/certificates/
  • Run: keytool -import -trustcacerts -keystore [PRO_MONITOR_HOME]/certificates/.keystore -storepass agentilKeyStore -noprompt -alias yourAliasName -file [PRO_MONITOR_HOME]/certificates/[certificate.cer]

Import keystore into the Redpeaks keystore

  • Run : keytool -importkeystore -srckeystore [YOUR_KEYSTORE] -srcstoretype pkcs12 -srcstorepass agentilKeyStore -destkeystore [PRO_MONITOR_HOME]/certificates/.keystore -deststoretype jks -deststorepass agentilKeyStore

Note: Redpeaks keystore (server keys) and truststore (Trusted certificates) are in the same store : certificates/.keystore
