TCPIP is a much more efficient protocol than HTTP/HTTPS. Typically the
only time one uses HTTP is when the remotes cannot create a direct TCPIP
connection to the ML server, and so are forced to synchronize through a
webserver (usually using the ML Redirector in the webserver).
IMO, there is no logical reason to use HTTP/HTTPS when your remote can
directly connect to ML (barring networking restrictions on the ToS).
