Configuring Flexmonster Accelerator with HTTPs SSL certificate

We need help for configuring  secure https connection with Flexmonster Accelerator.
Flexmonster Accelerator is running on
http://*.domainname.com/FlexmonsterProxy (Port is 443)
 
We have below certificates file are pointing our for *.domainname.com
1. jks file
2. PKCS #7 Certificates
We are referring  https://www.flexmonster.com/doc/configuring-secure-https-connection/ for configuration. And we made changes as well in flexmonster configuration file. But it doesn’t talk about any certificate file.
PORT=443
HTTPS=true
 
Can we get more details for above use case ?
 
Thanks,
Suresh.

Hello, Suresh,
Thank you for writing to us.
The most important part of the process is registering the server certificate. This is done via the following command:

netsh http add sslcert ipport=0.0.0.0:<port> certhash=<hash> appid=<app-guid>
  1. Your certificate file has its own hash. Please verify that <hash> you specify in this command matches the hash of your certificate file for the necessary URL.
  2. Then, please note that the port you specify in <port> parameter is not used by other servers. You can specify other ports, not only 443, but please remember to set the same port for PORT parameter in flexmonster.config .
  3. As about <app-guid>, you can specify any random guid. Please use single quotes and curly braces ('{}') in the appid parameter as following:
    netsh http add sslcert ipport=0.0.0.0:443 certhash=XXX appid='{YYY}'

To see all installed SSL certificates please use the following command:

netsh http show sslcert

Please inform me whether you have managed to configure HTTPS connection successfully.
Regards,
Tanya
