 VRM Portal: VRM Portal:
-  * Data to the VRM Portal is sent via HTTP POST and GET requests to http://​ccgxlogging.victronenergy.com on port 80. Sensitive data is sent using HTTPS on port 443 to the same host.+  * Data to the VRM Portal is sent via HTTP POST and GET requests to https://​ccgxlogging.victronenergy.com ​on port 443, with a user configurable override to use plain HTTP on port 80. Note that, even when configured to use plain HTTP, some outgoing requests will always use HTTPS on port 443.

The CCGX will also try to connect to victron MQTT cloud server ​ ​ranging from mqtt0.victronenergy.com to mqtt127.victronenergy.com), on port 443, using SSL. It uses port 443 to reduce the chance of using blocked outgoing ports.
  
 Remote Console on VRM (default disabled): Remote Console on VRM (default disabled):
-  * Remote Console on VRM uses the same reverse ssh tunnel as is used for Remote Support: outbound connection to supporthost.victronenergy.com on port 22, 80 or 443.
