THE STEPS TO CONFIGURE SSL FOR SENDQUICK

The beauty of sendQuick on-premise solution is that it can be situated in your organisation’s local network, protected by the firewall. Therefore, it is rather secure to access the User Interface of sendQuick from a browser within your local network.

That said, some organisations may require all browser access to have Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) in place. The good news is that you can enable SSL for sendQuick and it supports up to the latest SSL standard (TLS 1.3)

Step 1 : Ensure HTTP port 80 is enabled.

Prior to making any changes to the SSL setting, it is advisable that you check that the Default Web Service port 80 is enabled to ensure you can still have http access to the dashboard in case the SSL setup fail. Navigate to Server Setup > Optional Network Setup.

Confirm that the “Open Default Web Service Port 80” is marked as “Yes” to enable the port for http.

Step 2 : Generate a self-signed certificate and SSL key. 

Refer to our server manual on how to generate the SSL key and certificate 

>>sendQuick Server Licensing Agreement and Administration User Manual Version 4.3.3 
Refer to section 11.9.1 How to Generate SSL Key and Certificate, page 85-88.

Step 3 : Request a Certificate Authority (CA) to sign your certificate.  and SSL key. 

For proper SSL certification, we recommend that you purchase the SSL certificate specific to your domain name from a CA. The CA will then issue you a signed certificate.

Step 4 : Updating sendQuick with SSL Certificate and Key

On sendQuick dashboard, navigate to Security Setup > SSL Setup
Ensure that “Enable SSL Service” is ticked.

Copy and paste the SSL Key generated in Step 2 into this section.

Tick the checkbox for “Use CA file” if you have the signed CA certificate from Step 3 and upload the file here.

SSL Cipher Strength refers to the set algorithms that helps to establish the connection between the client and the web server. We recommend that you select “128 & 256” unless you have requirements to set it otherwise. You can also ignore the DHE, CBC, RSA options unless you are using those encryptions specifically. 

Our built-in SSL Protocol is TLS v1.3. For this selection you can just select “TLSv1.2” and enter the SSL password that was configured in Step 3.

Click on “Save” and you are done! Of course you need to test to see if it works. 

So we highly recommend you contact our support team if you require any assistance.
