SSL without Stunnel
« on: December 28, 2018, 06:07:42 PM »
Hello there, is there a way to make my server ssl secured without going through all the hassle with Stunnel with huge configuration editing, key generating and so on? Or maybe there are some pre-configured stunnel configuration files for HFS? Thanks

for those who want to use SSL without spending time trying to do the configuration, here is the latest version that made Silentpliz integrating SSL management.   (the link remains valid approximately thirty days)

you have to install SLL then launch this HFS from directory dedicated to your hfs. when everything is set, just leave this version and then launch the last official on the forum

@rsod: Mars is right, SilentPliz has made a HFS build that has Stunnel integrated. I recommend you to try it. ;)

@To developers: I noticed some time ago, that the Overbyte's ICS component already has support to SSL/TLS connections. Perhaps if some of you (someone with the enough knowledge) could dedicate some time to find out the code needed to bring native HTTPS support to HFS, that would be awesome.

@Tip to Mars: Overbyte's owner (Francois Piette) is also a french guy, so perhaps you could write to him if you have any technical doubts about how to implement this (I'm sure he will be pleased to give you a hand).

Besides that, Overbyte's ICS component already includes an HTTPS example on how to use it. When implementing this, HFS should automatically make a generic (self-certified) SSL certificate, without user intervention (it could be semi-automatic, so the certificate could be generated when the user enables this option).

Just dreaming about it, I hope some of you could dedicate some time to it...

here is the latest version that made Silentpliz integrating SSL management.
