I need to install a piece of client software which connects to a custom server (not a http server) on a specific port. But my IT dept are implementing HTTPS and say I must connect via HTTPS.
How does this work? Do I have to ask my application provider to support HTTPS? Does the application need to support HTTPS or do I only need to give my workstation a valid certificate and then connection to the server port will work?
Any help will be much appreciated.
