HTTPS Servers

HTTPS Servers

LogViewPlus can open log files using HTTP or HTTPS.  To open a file over HTTP/S simply paste the URL into the Open File settings.  Configuration is only necessary if your HTTPS server requires authentication or if a proxy server should be used. 

The authentication method is chosen automatically based on the server response.  Possible options include: NTLM, Kerberos, Negotiate, Digest, and Basic.

Refreshing a log file in LogViewPlus will cause the file to be re-downloaded from the server.

Authentication over HTTP is insecure and not supported.  Directory browsing and tail are not currently supported over HTTP/S.
