Extend HTTP Sensor(s) to support alternate port SSL scanning



Can the HTTP Sensor(s) be extended to support alternate port SSL scanning? We have secure web servers running on alternate ports such as 4430 or 8889 rather than 443, i.e. https://serveraddress.url:4430

Thank you!

Additional, please make sure choosing the correct SSL Options on tab Settings of the sensor.
Best regards
