Enable SSL on Domino 8.5.x server

Posted on 2013-10-30
Last Modified: 2013-12-18

I want to test SSL on my domino server but I do not have an SSL certificate yet. But, I still hope to be able to test port 993 even without a certificate. Is this possible with Domino? If so, what do I need to do to enable port 993 in Domino, and is there anything else I need to do in order to make it available to an email client other than Notes?

You try to enable imaps?
First you'll need to have the ssl cert. You should have a certsrv.nsf on your Server for that.
Either create a selfsigned cert or buy one.
Don't forget to enable the Port in the Server document and create the apropriate Internet Site document.
