By default, the appliance uses a self-signed certificate. If you are connecting using an IP address, you will see a hostname verification dialog box. Because the self-signed certificate is created using the hostname of the appliance, it is best to add the hostname to a DNS controller, or to your local hosts file, and connect by hostname.
