Different OS400 OS functionality depends on using non-secure ports (i.e. 446 and 8470 to 8476). If the different services (HTTP *ADMIN or CONSOLE) are configured to use secure ports (SSL) they still have dependencies on the backend for those unsecured ports. If the unsecure ports are restricted with ADDTCPPORT PORT(446) PROTOCOL(*TCP) USRPRF(GRPNOSSL) ADDTCPPORT PORT(8470 8476) PROTOCOL(*TCP) USRPRF(GRPNOSSL) the services do not work properly. Additionally two system jobs do not start. Known cases as of now are below: TS005390058 TS005241896
Enable capability for using only secure ports in line with Security Best Practices.
