To configure Internet Information Services (IIS) to listen to HTTPS:

Step 1: Open IIS Manager: Start -> Run and type 'inetmgr'.

Step 2: In the IIS Manager select the web site where AX web service is running.

Step 3: Add new HTTPS binding for this web site with a previously installed certificate:

  • Click 'Bindings…' on the right pane and then click 'Add…';
  • In the 'Add Site Binding' window add the new binding of the 'https' type and generated SSL certificate:
