NAME

httpcfg - Mono Certificate Management for HttpListener  

SYNOPSIS

httpcfg [options] certificate  

DESCRIPTION

This tool is used to manage the certificates used by the HttpListener embeddable server class when the HttpListener is configured as an HTTPS server instead of an HTTP server.

You must select one of the possible actions: add, delete or list.

When adding a certificate (-add), you must provide the following information: a certificate (with the -cert flag) a Private Key file (with the -pvk argument, the filename is typically "key") and a port number (with the -port flag).

When deleting a certificate (-del or -delete) you need to provide the port number.  

PARAMETERS

-add
Adds a new certificate/private key combination for being used at a given port by the HttpListener API.
-del, -delete
Deletes the certificates associated for the port specified (must be specified separatedly).
-list
List all known certificates.
-port PORT
Specifies the port to add certificates to, or remove certificates from.
-pvk FILE
Specifies the Private Key file.
-cert CERT
Specifies the certificate file to use.
 

EXAMPLES

httpcfg -add -port 8081 -pvk myfile.pvk -cert MyCert
