Netsight Console - open Webview of EWC by name not by IP


Userlevel 6
Because of the painful certificate error message when EWC Admin Page was opened i generate a certificate based on EWC DNS name.

Now the problem is solved if the URL is specified to DNS name.

Unfortunately if i open EWC GUI via Netsight Console (legacy Java tool) - WebView - the the URL is opened via IP - and the certificate does not match.

This come from the items of deviceTypes.properties:
# High Path Wireless Controller C4110
1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.1.1.11=c4110
c4110=1.3.6.1.4.1.4329.15.1.1.11
c4110.family=Wireless Controller
c4110.name=C4110
c4110.treeicon=5
c4110.mapicon=New_Wireless_for_Console_Map.gif
c4110.deviceimage=C4110.png
c4110.webview=https://%IP:5825 <-- here
c4110.policydevicetype=12
c4110.dmsproductkey=Hipath Wireless Controllers,WS-C4110
c4110.devicelayout=24

Can i change this to maybe %SYSNAME or something like that ?
(Comments in the deviceType file does explain any other variable then %IP)

Is there a way to achieve my goal ?

Hello Matthias,

did you try to add the IP address as a subject alternate name to the certificate? Just an idea, I do not know if this is even supposed to work.
