In Network Configuration Manager a few clients are configured to communicate over HTTPS and others over HTTP. You may want to change the default protocols depending upon network performance or security requirements.
Here are the default protocols used by the clients when communicating with the Application Server:
|NCM thick client||HTTP|
|J2EE API calls||HTTP|
|NCM Smarts Adapter||HTTPS|
|NCM EDAA (NCM MSA)||HTTPS|
