The default installation of the App-V Management Console includes support for secure communications. Each Management Console is configured on a per-connection basis when the console is started for the first time or when connecting to an additional App-V Web Management Service. The default configuration uses SSL over TCP port 443. You can change the port number if the port number was modified on the server. You can use the following procedure to connect to an App-V Web Management Service by using a secure connection.
How to Connect to an App-V Management Service by Using an SSL Connection
Start the Application Virtualization Management Console.
Click Configure Connection in the actions pane of the console.
Type the Web Service Host Name, and ensure that Use Secure Connection is selected.
The name provided in the Web Service Host Name must match the common name on the certificate, or the connection will fail.
Select the appropriate login credentials, and click OK.
