Dell N-Series HTTPS

Often asked how to enable web management and SSH on Dell N-Series switching so this is a quick guide on how to do just that.

****Create the cryptographic keys for SSH****
crypto key generate dsa
crypto key generate rsa
****Enable SSH****
ip ssh server
****Create a self–signed certificate for HTTPS****
crypto certificate 1 generate
key-generate
exit
****Enable HTTPS****
ip http secure-server 

Benefits over HTTP and Telnet are that information is encrypted and a packet sniffer would not see information in plain text as seen below.

Here we can see the switch using HTTPS with the self-signed certificate.
