HTTP tunnel transport channel settings
Use this page to view and configure an HTTP tunnel transport channels. Inbound connections sent through this channel are tunneled over HTTP, allowing intermediates to view this data as the body of an HTTP message instead of in its natural format. This type of channel is often used to circumvent firewalls with protocol restrictions.
To view this administrative console page, click Servers > Application servers > servername > Ports . Click on View associated transports for the port associated with the HTTP Tunnel transport channel whose settings you want to look at.
- Transport channel name
Name of the HTTP tunnel transport channel.
This name must be unique across all channels in a WebSphere Application Server environment. For example DCS and TCP transport channels cannot have the same name if they reside within the same system.
- Discrimination weight
Specifies the priority this channel has in relation to the other channels in this transport chain. This property is only used when port sharing is enabled and the channel chain includes multiple channels to which it might forward data. The channel in the chain with the lowest discrimination weight is the first one given the opportunity to look at incoming data and determine whether or not it owns that data.
