By default, all client communications with FotoWeb runs over standard, unencrypted http on port 80. This topic and its associated subtopics explain how to configure FotoWeb to use a secure connection and/or non-standard port numbers for communications.
By configuring FotoWeb for secure communications, all clients connections to the server can run in encrypted mode. This includes web browser requests, Office plugins, Creative Suite Extensions and mobile apps.
It's also possible to encrypt communications to the Operations Center itself and the communications between FotoWeb and Index Manager in configurations where they are located on different machines and you want to make sure the communications cannot be intercepted.
