Hi, I am trying to enable XML over HTTPS on a CSM (WS-X6066-SLB-APC)with 4.2.5. When I go under XML-Config I do not see anywhere I could setup HTTPS. I would appreciate your help.

I havent tried it by myself. I would love to know if it works. Please try this

1. enable HTTPS on the Sup

use following link


2. Once HTTPS is enabled on SUP then you configure the xml-config in CSM.

Let us know if it work :)

I do not see the IP http-secure server option on the SUP IOS, I only find IP http. Have you seen any Cisco document that would indicate that HTTPS is supported on a 6500-SUP720-MSFC3 IOS?

Bad news.

I double checked it and its confirmed that 'ip http secure-server' is not supported on the Sup720 platform.
