Ionic serve --ssl not Working : no https://

I’ trying to start a dev server with https, but when executing ionic serve --ssl, I’m still getting http only.

Here are the steps I undertook:

  1. installing openssl like described in this post: Installing OpenSSL on Windows 10 and updating PATH | by Nintendo Engineer | The Startup | Medium

  2. running ionic ssl generate to generate the ssl certificates.

  3. running ionic serve --ssl

I’m using ionic/vue 6.0

Any Ideas?
