    Hi,

    I am running Plesk 7 Reloaded on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

    A few clients cannot use the Plesk control panel, since their corporate firewall doesn't allow outbound connections to non-standard ports, like port 8443 used by the Plesk web server.

    Is there any way to access the Plesk control panel using the standard SSL port (443)?

    Thanks.

    All you have to do is to change the apache file /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/httpsd.conf

    That will conflict with the SSL port used by domains on the server, unless you use a dedicated IP address for the control panel web server.

    I wish Plesk provided a way to access the control panel on standard SSL port, e.g. https://mydomain.com/panel/

    Thanks.

    You can do this only if you make Plesk answer to a specific IP and disable this IP for hosting. In this case you have to modify only in:

    /usr/local/psa/admin/conf/httpsd.conf

    The Listen directive.

    Changing the 'Listen' directive will solve a part of the problem, making the control panel listen and respond on a port other than 8443.

    To be able to browse to a URL such as https://mydomain.com/panel/ or https://panel.mydomain.com would also require the use of Rewrite conditions/rules or possibly 'Redirect permanent' directive.

    There are other posts on the forums dealing with each part of this question. If I had more time right now I'd do the searching and post links, but I don't...
