I can only access a switch using ScreenPlay if I have HTTP enabled on the switch.  If I disable HTTP, but keep HTTPS enabled, ScreenPlay does not work.  Due to security reasons we disable HTTP access to all our networking devices - which is standard practice.

Is there a way to have ScreenPlay access a switch (BD8810 or Summit 670) using HTTPS?

You can access the device using Screenplay via HTTPS.  You must first have SSH installed and enabled on the device.  Then you must either generate an SSL key or provide a pre-generated SSL key on the device.  The last step is to enable HTTPS on the device and you should now be able to use Screenplay via HTTPS.
