Qns1. Im confused I thought the command 'ssl' was added at the 'line vty 0 4' stage - used for enabling via a browser: https://x.x.x.x.x - ?

Qns2. Although in order to setup a connection via a browser for a Cisco 837 is as below:?

Enable the router's HTTP/HTTPS server, using the following Cisco IOS commands:  
Router(config)# ip http server
Router(config)# ip http secure-server
Router(config)# ip http authentication local

Note:- HTTPS is enabled only for crypto enabled IOS images.
Create a user with privilege level 15.
Router(config)# username <username> privilege 15 password 0 <password>

Note:- Replace <username> and <password> with the username and password that you want to configure.

Configure SSH and Telnet for local login and privilege level 15:
Router(config)# line vty 0 4
Router(config-line)# privilege level 15
Router(config-line)# login local
Router(config-line)# transport input telnet
Router(config-line)# transport input telnet ssh
Router(config-line)# exit

(Optional) Enable local logging to support the log monitoring function:  
Router(config)# logging buffered 51200 warning
