Redirect non-SSL to SSL



  • Did a quick search but nothing substantive came up.

    Anyway to easily redirect HTTP connection to webGUI to a HTTPS connection? Just to make it easier for us lazy people? :)

    So instead of typing in the browser:

    https://pfsense

    We can just type:

    pfsense

    Thanks for any suggestions!



  • You would need a redirection page for this to work. Not really worth the effort imo. If you really have such a hard time in typing "https://" additionally I think a browserbookmark or using browserhistory should be even more convenient  ;)



  • If you are using firefox you can save the link to your pfsense box. Then go back to that favorite right click on it and choose properties. If you put pfsense in the keyword section and save it. Then you can go to your browser's URL bar and type pfsense and it will then replace the keyword with your link you saved in the favorites.

    Another option way this can be done on more than one system is by using opendns with a free account. Once you are logged into opendns you can define keywords that will be replaced with links that you define.

    Actually these are nice options that I never have thought about yet. Great ideas!  :)
