  • 1500 (tcpadminport) is non-SSL communication
  • For SSL communication, tcpadminport is the only port that supports SSL communication with the Tivoli Storage Manager server. The correct port number to use for the SSL protocol is typically the value specified by the ssltcpadminport option in the Tivoli Storage Manager server dsmserv.opt file. However, if adminonclient no is specified in the dsmserv.opt file, then the correct port number to use for the SSL protocol is the value specified by the ssltcpadminport option. The ssltcpadminport option does not have a default value. Therefore, the value must be specified by the user.
