Question: How do I change the https admin-port on an Aruba controller? How to change the https admin-port to 8443 from 4343?
Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 2.5.5.x and later.
In ArubaOS 188.8.131.52 and 3.1.x later, this feature is no longer supported, but we have a workaround for the problem.
1) Create an IP access-group applied to the physical trusted port on the controller:
ip access-list session mgmt-https-acl
any alias mswitch tcp 8443 dst-nat 4343
any any any permit
Interface fastethernet 1/0
ip access-group session mgm-https-acl
If you have another firewall blocking the port 4343 to the controller, you cannot rely on the http://controller_ip to redirect you to https://controller_ip:8443. Moreover, this ACL only applies to access from the wired side, not the wireless side.
