Description

This command configures support for the Web IOS interface software. This feature enables an HTTP server on the router and allows you to configure the router by pointing any web browser at this server. The access-class option lets you specify an access list that limits access to the HTTP server. The port option lets you specify the port on which the server listens.

The acceptable authentication methods are enable, local, tacacs, and aaa.

Example

The following commands enable the web browser interface and specify a non-default port:

ip http server
ip http port 8008
