Advanced Options Dialog Box (Plug-in)
By default, this option is checked when you install Visual SourceSafe. It ensures that the VSS Internet Plug-In exclusively uses secure encrypted communication to send and receive data from the SourceSafe Web service.
If the Web Service only supports non-secure (http://) connections, and the SourceSafe Internet Plug-In requires SSL (https://), you will not be able to contact the Web service. Contact your SourceSafe administrator to make sure that the SourceSafe Web server you are trying to connect to supports SSL before checking this option.
- Always use SSL to connect to the server
Check this box to ensure that the Visual SourceSafe plug-in exclusively uses secure encrypted communication to send and receive data from the SourceSafe Web service. Clear this box if your Web service does not support secure connections.
