Transport Specifies whether the client processes connect to the server using one of the server-connected transports.

You can choose to use either SSL, TCP/IP or Both as the outbound transport which a server supports. If you specify TCP/IP, the server only supports TCP/IP and cannot initiate SSL connections with downstream servers. If you specify SSL Supported, this server can initiate either TCP/IP or SSL connections. If you specify SSL Required, then this server must use SSL to initiate connections to downstream servers. When you do specify SSL, decide which set of SSL configuration settings you want to use for the outbound configuration. This decision determines which key file and trust file to use for outbound connections to downstream servers. For example, consider the following options...

TCP/IP This server opens TCP/IP connections with downstream servers only.

SSL Supported This server opens SSL connections with any downstream servers that support them, and TCP/IP connections with any downstream servers that do not support these SSL connections.

SSL Required This server always opens SSL connections with downstream servers.

Default... SSL-Supported
Range... TCP/IP, SSL-Required, SSL-Supported

SSL settings Specifies a list of predefined SSL settings for outbound connections. These settings are configured at the SSL Configuration Repertoires panel.

Data type... String
Default... DefaultSSLSettings
Range... Any SSL settings configured in the SSL Configuration Repertoires panel
