The following steps show you how to enable the HTTPS web based GUI on Brocade vRouter / Vyatta. By default, the web gui is disabled, so you must enable it via the command line interface if you wish to use it.
Enter configuration mode
Enable the HTTPS service
# set service https
Commit the changes
Save the configuration
Exit configuration mode
vyatta@vyatta:~$ configure  vyatta@vyatta# set service https  vyatta@vyatta# commit [ service https ] Generating a 1024 bit RSA private key .......++++++ ........++++++ writing new private key to '/etc/lighttpd/server.pem' ----- [ service https ] Stopping web server: lighttpd. Starting web server: lighttpd. Stopping PAGER server Starting PAGER server  vyatta@vyatta# save Saving configuration to '/config/config.boot'... Done  vyatta@vyatta# exit exit vyatta@vyatta:~$
If it is the first time you have enabled the web gui, it will automatically generate the RSA private keys, as shown in the example above.
You should now be able to access the web gui via the address https://your.vyatta.router.ip/
