Component: NetMaster for TCPIP

Release : 12.2


Trying to run the NM Web Portal in a non-secured environment. This is no longer allowed, as stated in the Configuration Methods section of the NetMaster 12.2 documentation:


The service will not start if you do not configure HTTPS using one of these methods.


Configure secure communication for NetMaster Web Portal (and API Service too) as outlined in the Configure the Security Environment section of the documentation.  AT-TLS is the recommendation for API and Web Portal.
