How to create a secure (HTTPS) OS X webserver
Authored by: trixiemay on Mar 27, '05 05:55:39PM

Notes from newbie:

was trying to do above. all worked fine when i did local access via 127.0.0.1 but when i tried using external address it didn't work.

i'm assuming you have to manually add port 443 to sharing firewall (in addition to 80 & 427).

when i tried to add this via the SystemPreferences GUI, it wouldn't allow me to edit so i had to hack the Library/Preferences/...firewall.plist file manually.

anyone know why? anyways, hope this may be helpful to the next person.

You should be able to add new ports to the firewall configuration in System Preferences by going to Sharing and pick the Firewall tab there. There's a New button there -- this produces a list of protocols, but you can select Other and enter a range of ports.

Checking/enabling the "Personal Web Sharing" box in the "Sharing" preference panel covers ports 80, 427, and 443 already -- at least in Mac OS X 10.4.8
