Disabling HTTP access on a 3825 router?

Unanswered Question
Jul 3rd, 2009

I have tried to enter the "no ip http server" command and the "no ip http secure-server" commands and I still see http connection is enabled on the router, see below:

HTTP Client Connections:


Persistent connection = enabled

Initial socket connection timeout = 5 secs (default)

Connection idle timeout = 2 secs (default)

Total HTTP server connections = 0

Can anyone provide feedback on how to disable http access on the router?

Please let me know!

Thank you.

Try connecting. Display output may be irrelevant.

You did the right things. (grin) If you want to check it please use a "show ip http server all" command. You will see some thing like this HTTP server status: Disabled.

Hello Vicky,

>> Total HTTP server connections = 0

Have you tried to access the router admin page?

Is it still reachable or not ?

if not the show command provides parameters for http client connections but it is a different matter.

Another note is about SDM:

have you used SDM on it?

This could need additional / different commands to disable http/https access

Hope to help

Hi Guys,

Vicky typed a "sh ip http client" command. That won't tell you what you want.

Hi Giuseppe,

I gave this a try and the router was un-reachable. Thank you for your help!

no ip http server and no ip http secure-server are enough to disable http on the router.

If you still have doubts, you may want to apply an ACL that matches http traffic and log it. That will proove you that http is no longer working once the above commands are entered.
