Securing the Web Interface with SSL

Question

I've been running the PingPlotter Web GUI, and I am hoping to have it secured with SSL. How can I do this?

Solution

We don't have an officially supported way to do an SSL securing of your web interface. However, we do have a workaround for now which employs a reverse proxy using nginx and an SSL certificate easily obtained from a free CA.
 
A great option would be to follow the instructions found here:

For this option, you still will have to obtain an SSL certificate - and Let's Encrypt is a great free CA if you'd like to go this route. Here's their site:

This *should* work for you for the interim while we look to find a better permanent solution for our newest generation of product. This page will be updated when a solution has been implemented - check back later!
