HTTP transport settings
Use this page to view and configure an HTTP transport. The name of the page might be that of an SSL setting such as DefaultSSLSettings.
On a distributed platform, if, when migrating from V5, you indicate that you want to continue using an HTTP transport to handle your HTTP requests, your V5 transports are migrated for you. If you are not migrating from WAS V5, set up an HTTP transport channel to handle your HTTP requests.
Note that the use of IPv6 (Internet Protocol V6) and WS-AT (Web Services Atomic Transactions) are not supported on HTTP transports; they are only supported on HTTP transport channel chains.
