In order to request annotation settings over HTTP or HTTPS, it is necessary to identify the management IP address to which the requests must be sent.

The addresses can be identified using the following command:

evs list -t admin

On the NAS module, there are 2 controller addresses (CTL1 and CTL2) and either can be used for sending HTTP/HTTPS requests.

Alternatively, if a single public admin address on an eth-ag port is configured, that can also be used to make HTTP/HTTPS requests.

HTTP

The HTTP server must be enabled in order to accept annotation requests from third-party software. To verify that the HTTP server is enabled, use the following command:

mscfg http

The HTTP server accepts requests on port 8080. This cannot be modified on the NAS module.

HTTPS

To verify that the HTTPS server is enabled, use the following command:

mscfg https

The HTTPS server accepts requests on port 8443. This cannot be modified on the NAS module.

Note: See the mscfg command man page for information on managing an HTTP/HTTPS server.
