Hi @Aji

You need to set FQDN on the Interface Settings:

Set Hostname/FQDNSet Hostname/FQDN

If You had to change the FQDN, i'd recoomend to reboot the Appliance after setting a new hostname.
After that You should be able to use the resolveable FQDN on the URL.

Best regards

Hi @marcus69 

Thank you for the guide, I have already set but not working after saving. However, after rebooting the applicance, it's already worked.
