Resolution

You can change the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) port if you use the default port (8081). You can change the TCP after the server is added to Management Control. If you change the port number, use a number that is not in use by another program or service.

You can also specify whether to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for communication between the console and a server.

See Implementing SSL communications
