Remote Access to a Routr Server

By default, Routr installs a certificate that only allows for connections using the localhost or To use rctl tool from a remote host, you must generate a certificate that accepts connections to the desired domain name or IP and then update the spec.restService section of the config.yml.

Here is an example using a self-signed certificate(usually enough).

keytool -genkey -keyalg RSA \
-noprompt \
-alias routr \
-keystore api-cert.jks \
-storepass changeit \
-keypass changeit \
-validity 365 \
-keysize 2048 \
-dname ", OU=OSS, O=Your Company Inc, L=Sanford, ST=NC, C=US" \

Remember to place the certificate in the etc/certs folder
