Enabling SSL Processing

Nov 11, 2013
To process SSL traffic, you must enable SSL processing. You can configure SSL based entities, such as virtual servers and services, without enabling SSL processing, but they will not work until SSL processing is enabled.

To enable SSL processing by using the command line interface

At the command prompt, type:

  • enable ns feature ssl
  • show ns feature


> enable ns feature SSL 
> show ns feature 
        Feature                        Acronym              Status 
        -------                        -------              ------ 
 1)     Web Logging                    WL                   OFF 
 2)     Surge Protection               SP                   ON 
 3)     Load Balancing                 LB                   ON 
 9)     SSL Offloading                 SSL                  ON 
 24)    NetScaler Push                 push                 OFF
