Summary
The Services area displays, and allows you to enable and disable, services running on the SMS server and that are used to communicate with the SMS server. Because not all services are secure, be sure to carefully consider which services you enable. HTTP and Telnet are not secure services.
 
SMS Services
SettingDescription
SSHSecure communication connection used for CLI. Requires Super User access. SSH is enabled by default. When enabled, you can set the login grace time. The grace time is the amount of time a user has to enter a password and establish a connection. The SMS disconnects after this time if the user has not successfully logged in. The default is 60 seconds, but you can set the time from 30 to 600 seconds. A limit of three invalid SSH connection attempts can now be configured. When set at 3, the SSH disconnects after three unsuccessful attempts.
HTTPSSecure network communication for web pages. Enabling HTTPS enables web services for the SMS. HTTPS is enabled by default.
HTTPUnsecure network communication connection for web pages. Enabling HTTP enables web services for the SMS.
TelnetUnsecured network connection used for CLI, requires Super User access.
PingAllows the SMS to respond to an ICMP request. Ping is enabled by default.

Procedure:

  1. Log in to the SMS from a client.
  2. On the SMS toolbar, navigate to the Admin > Server Properties tab.
  3. Select the Management tab.
  4. In the Services area, click the check box for the services that you want to enable or uncheck the Enable check box for services that you do not want enabled.

Note: By default, HTTP and telnet are not enabled. Enabling these services opens unsecure network communications on the SMS server.
