In EXOS version 15.6 and lower http is disabled by default in EXOS and must be manually enabled.
In EXOS 15.7 and higher http is enabled by default on an unconfigured switch. 

For HTTP access:
  1.  Type enable web http
For HTTPS access:
  1. If the switch is running 16.1 or earlier, install the EXOS SSH module.
  2. Generate an SSL certificate to be used with the command:
    1. configure ssl certificate privkeylen <length> country <country_code> organization <org_name> common-name <name>
  3. Enable the HTTPS web interface with the command enable web https

To confirm whether HTTP/HTTPS access is enabled:
  • Issue the command show configuration detail thttpd
X440G2-24t-10G4 # show configuration detail thttpd
# Module thttpd configuration.
enable web http
disable web https
configure ssl certificate hash-algorithm sha512

  • Issue the command show managment
X440G2-24t-10G4.7 # show management
