The Adito is a great software for easy SSL tunneling through a browser.
The installation in Windows was not pretty and many potentinally users might go away just because of that.

I have taken a few hours of my time to bring you an more easy way to install it.

  1. Hi,

    I’m still using the open source SSL explorer though.

    Please does anyone knows how I can remove “SSL Explorer” as the Title when I load it on my browser?


    • Hi Lams,
      Sorry for the late reply..
      I’ve never hacked the title & so on, so I had to figure it out ;)

      Goto the %aditoinstall%\webapp\WEB-INF\jsp\tiles directory
      Open the pageHeader.jspf file
      Change the line 9 from:
      [title]<bean:message key="” bundle=”"/>[/title]
      (Remove the [] to html-tags)

      Then restart your SSL Explorer server :)


  2. Hi.

    I have been using Adito / OpenVPN-ALS without issue for years on a Linux box. I just recently went to renew our SSL certificate and was told that they no long issue 128bit Certificates. Does anyone one have a walk through for generating a 256 bit certificate that works with Openvpn-ALS? The project seems dead, which is a shame, because it works well. I am not a Linux Guru but I have read a lot of threads about generating a certificate and installing it. It appears however, that nobody has got it working 100%.

  4. Use the non-service mode and start googling it… I’m still waiting for OpenVPN ALS crew to make a new release to upgrade java-stuff ect…

  5. I am having problems installing this on windows server 2003. The service keeps crashing and I cannot get it to start again.

  6. Hi Dennis…

    I’m not the author of Adito nor have I any knowledge in commercials use of GPL. Please ask the question to mattock at this site:

  7. Hello Lars,

    i am writing to you, because “adito”. We are looking for a remote tool. Nor my question: adito depends on GNU General Public License, could we use it as commercial users? And why should I ask you? It is a GNU Lizense or not?

    Thanks and sorry for my bad English

    Dennis Mäusling

  8. Thanks for the info. I do have a 10 user enterprise client and until more extensions are written, I will have to stick with the original SSL-Explorer. I hope Adito can catch up soon.

  9. Ernie:
    You cannot install Adito over the old SSL Explorer. Adito = Community version, SSL Explorer = usually Enterprise.
    But you can use the plugins/package (with modification) if you’d like. Either way, you have to start almost from scratch.

    I haven’t manage to run SSL Explorer and Adito in parallel, therefore both of them cannot run at once. That is a bummer for most…

  10. I’m guessing I can;’t just install over the old SSL-Explorer site i ahve. Is there an easy way to install over the top of it or keep my exxisting settings? I REALLY hate to have to set all that back up again. Thanks!!
