Can I use SSL/HTTPS between Package Server(s) and clients?
A Remote Package Server can be configured to use SSL/HTTPS to communicate with clients if configured properly.
The site server certificate generator tool AeXGenSiteServerCert.exe (Program Files\Altiris\Notification Server\Bin\Tools\) lets you create a site server certificate. The certificate name must match the name of the site server. Also, this certificate is signed by the special Notification Server certificate authority (CA) certificate (“SMP NS_NAME Agent CA” located in Trusted Root Certificate Authorities store).
If you do not have your own corporate certificate authority, this tool lets you easily set up HTTPS on your site servers. You can add a root certificate authority (CA) to the Trusted Root Certificate Authorities store on the managed computer. You can add the appropriate certificate either by using Managed Software Delivery or by using an Active Directory group policy.
