Changing HTTP protocol using ION Setup

You can change the protocol setting for accessing the meter webpages.

It is recommended to use HTTPS or HTTPS with HTTP redirect to avoid compromising the security of your local network.

  1. Start ION Setup.
  2. Open the Setup Assistant for your meter.
  3. Navigate to Communications > Advanced Ethernet and click the Protocols tab.
  4. Select the Web protocol and click Edit. If prompted, enter the meter password.
  5. Select the web protocol setting:
    Option Description
    Disabled Turns off the meter’s web functionality and blocks all access to the meter web server
    HTTP Allows non-secure access and unencrypted communications between the client computer and the meter web server
    HTTPS Allows only secure access and encrypted communications between the client computer and the meter web server
    HTTPS With HTTP Redirect Redirects all HTTP requests to use the HTTPS web protocol.
You can change the default Assigned Port Numbers for HTTP and HTTPS. This requires appending the changed port number for HTTP or HTTPS access to the meter’s webpages. For example, <meter IP address>:<changed http or https port number>.
