A couple of questions about ssl tunneling


If I make an ssl tunnel between my_pc and some_server it is my understanding that the communication takes place on port 443 and the data in the communication is encrypted. I also understand that the protocol associated with the communication is https:

If those understandings are correct, my question is... does the tunnel obscure the original protocol? If I am communicating with a Usenet server (which normally uses nntp protocol) and I connect through an ssl tunnel does the traffic still appear to be nntp?

TIA,

Ken

You're not mentioning how (by which method) you stand up the tunnel;
at the end of the day you could chose any arbitrary port you like.
