Add SSL layer to my webserver, Running on embedded system,

7 February 2019, 10:13
Hi. I have an Hiawatha server running on embedded system i'm working on.
First of all great server. Thank you.

I want to ask what are the actions I needed to do in order to add SSL layer to the server so it will work only with https.

Thank you.

Have you read the HOWTO pages?

Yes I read it. I used the instructions of "lets encrypt" and I encountered with a problem in the "challenge" step. It's keep "challenge" until it failed.
I ran this test on a server in my work, maybe something is blocking it and this is the reason it failed.

Another issue is with the target embedded system its not going to be online all the time so I have limitation with updating the certificates, but I think it's off topic, this is not a general how to do forum.

Now after further reading I think that I've done a big mess. I don't really own any domain, so I don't know how the CA can verify that I own the local domain I made up.

I just wanted to add a more secure connection between the server running on the embedded system to the user, currently all communication is via http. the question is if it's possible?

Sorry for the double post.
