Configuring RICOH Cloud Connector to use HTTPS in Windows

Once you have installed RICOH Cloud Connector, you can activate Transport Layer Security (TLS) and link it to the existing digital certificates.
Before configuring RICOH Cloud Connector to use HTTPS, download and install RICOH Cloud Connector on a computer where you have writing and execution permissions.
This is the procedure for Windows 10. There might be slight differences in other operating systems or platforms.
  1. Go to C:\ProgramData\RICOH\Cloud Connector\RccInfo\config.
  2. In the config.json file, add the following values to the httpsKey and httpsCertificate lines:
    "httpsKey": "c:\\https.key"
    "httpsCertificate": "c:\\https.crt"

    where c:\\https.key is the location of the generated private key and c:\\https.crt is the location of the generated certificate.

    Note: Make sure that the following are true:
    • The https.key and https.crt file names are only examples and the actual names of the generated files can be different.
    • The two location strings are correctly written, with "\\" for the Windows path, and they match the existing locations on the computer.
    • The key and the certificate file are both PEM format files.
  3. Click the Windows search button and write Services in the search bar.
  4. In the services list that opens, find and restart the RICOH Cloud Connector service.
