SSL settings Description
Relay Server Administrative Interface URL
This is an informational field that shows the current URL to be used for secure administrative access to the Groove Server Relay administrative Web interface.
Accept the default SSL certificate entry or change it. This URL is first set during Groove Server Relay installation, as described in Configure Groove Server 2010 Relay.
Default: Name of your installed Relay server
Click the Generate Certificate button as needed to generate the self-signed SSL certificates for the Groove Server Relay administrative interface.
Regenerate certificates from this Admin Interface page any time you change the Relay server administrative settings.
