Transports provide request queues between WAS plug-ins for Web servers and Web containers in which the Web modules of applications reside. When you request an application in a Web browser, the request is passed to the Web server, then along the transport to the Web container.

On a distributed platform, if, when migrating from WAS V5.x, you indicate that you want to continue using an HTTP transport to handle your HTTP requests, your V5.x transports are migrated for you. If you are not migrating from V5.x, set up an HTTP transport channel to handle your HTTP requests.

Note that the use of IPv6 and WS-AT not supported on HTTP transports; they are only supported on HTTP transport channel chains.


Specifies the host IP address to bind for transport. If the application server is on a local machine, the host name might be localhost.


Specifies the port to bind for transport. The port number can be any port that currently is not in use on the system. The port number must be unique for each application server instance on a given machine.

For distributed platforms, there is no limit to the number of HTTP ports that are allowed per process.

SSL Enabled

Specifies whether to protect connections between the WebSphere plug-in and application server with SSL. The default is not to use SSL.
