ELENA Issues with https connection - only http will work ...

SAP and ZSS are having some issues with the https connection since changes on the ZSS site. The complete root cause seems to be not really clear. Now, http only is supported for customers.

At least the following notes are of interest in this area:

Note 1448193 - ELENA: Set up HTTP connection for communication server

Note 1459401 - ELENA: HTTP correction for confirm

Note 1460897 - ELENA: File no. error in test run RPCELKD0 w/ several files

Note 1472232 - ELENA: Problems during transfer via HTTPS

Note 1472232 describes the root cause in the following dev_icm trace more in detail:
