We are Currently Still running OpenhiM in a Plot Project.
we run it on a remote Host machine with a different IP adress other that LocalHost.
Some times the default credentials work ,Authentication works.
We dont yet have a DNS name for our IP adress.

Is it possible to add Subject Alternative Names to the self assigned certicates generated by the OpenHIM core ,to  point to our IP adress ??

It isn't possible to add a SAN when the OpenHIM generates the certificate, however, you could generate your own self-signed certificate and configure the OpenHIM to use that instead. That would give you the do do whatever you need with the certificate.
