We'd like to do away with any pesky additional AAMs, and also not have to worry about extending our web applications more than we need to - our implementation is very straightforward, and having extra wiring on the back end that allows for HTTP traffic seems unnecessary.
We use NTLM under classic-mode over HTTPS 99.9999% of the time for all traffic inside and outside the network.
Can anyone forsee any problems with only allowing https traffic to a particular site?
We'd also like to do away with access from the machine name (http://machineName)
(https://portal.contoso.com) for the site
(https://portal.contoso.com:1234) for central admin
Workable alternatives to this are good too. TIA.
