- Automatically update

The XML Service runs on the Delivery Controller and supports the HTTP and HTTPS protocols.
By default, the XML Service listens on port 80 for HTTP traffic and port 443 for HTTPS traffic. Although you can use non-default ports on a Controller for HTTP or HTTPS traffic, be aware of the security risks of exposing a Controller to untrusted networks. Instead of changing the defaults, it is preferable to deploy a standalone StoreFront server.
http port is the port number for HTTP traffic and https port is the port number for HTTPS traffic.
