The SSL configuration and the RAM Server configuration depend on the organization's policies and strategies. The guidelines for SSL and the RAM Server are not product requirements. For secure communications, you should enable SSL on IIS and SQL Server.
The RAM Server does not require user certificates. If your network requires user certificates, the RAM Server virtual directory must be configured to ignore user certificates. If SSL is enabled on the IIS Server, you can change the RAMServer.exe.config file to configure the SSL enabled setting.
