You’ll see a dialog with separate tabs for each protocol group, and individual checkboxes to enable each protocol. The TCP/IP port number used for each protocol can also be configured.
Certain protocols have additional options for configuration.
Web Panels Protocol
The Web Panels protocol is typically always enabled, because the RouteMaster control interface uses it internally. The protocol is based on HTTP Websockets, and is described in detail here.
You can enable TLS Encryption for this protocol, which will use a PEM-encoded certificate and private key from the files
