This information is deprecated as of Orion Platform version 2017.1, which includes NPM 12.1, SAM 6.4, NCM 7.6, and VMAN 7.1.

SolarWinds products support the use of Secure Sockets Layer certificates to enable secure communications with the Orion Web Console.

Requirements

  • Your server must have the required SSL certificate installed.
  • Conduct secure SSL/TLS communications over port 443.

Due to security concerns, SolarWinds recommends that you disable SSL v3.0 and earlier.

  1. Add a binding to https port 443 for the SolarWinds NetPerfMon site. For more information, consult the Microsoft online documentation on setting up SSL.
  2. Enable the Orion Web Console for SSL.
  3. You can also configure the Orion Web Console to require SSL.
