The web-based POA console is set up automatically when you create a new post office. You can optionally protect the POA console with a user name and password, or use an SSL connection between your web browser and the POA.
In the GroupWise Admin console, browse to and click the POA.
Click thetab, then scroll down to the section.
(Conditional) If you want to use an SSL connection for the POA console, which provides optimum security, selector in the drop-down list.
Enabled: If the POA is configured with a valid SSL certificate, the POA console uses SSL. If a valid SSL certificate is not available, the POA still provides the POA console, but without a secure SSL connection.
Required: The POA does not support the POA console unless a valid SSL certificate has been provided.
For additional instructions about using SSL connections, see Section 90.2, Server Certificates and SSL Encryption.
If you want to limit access to the POA console, fill in theand fields.
Unless you are using SSL, do not use a user name that is synchronized from an LDAP directory (such as NetIQ eDirectory or Microsoft Active Directory). This is because the information passes over the non-secure connection between your web browser and the agent. If you are using SSL, the user name is encrypted and therefore secure.
Click, then click to return to the main Admin console window.
Continue with Accessing the POA Console.
Corresponding Startup Switches: You can also use the ‑‑httpport, ‑‑httpuser, ‑‑httppassword, and ‑‑httpssl startup switches in the POA startup file to enable and secure the POA console. In addition, you can use the ‑‑httprefresh switch to control how often the POA refreshes the information provided to your web browser.
