WebSpeed Messenger

The WebSpeed Messenger is a process running on a Web server that finds a WebSpeed Transaction Server to handle a client request. It can be configured to use a NameServer to find an appropriate Transaction server, or to link directly to a specific Transaction server.
It also handles the transfer of data between the agent and a Web server during a Web transaction. The Messenger is a CGI program or an ISAPI or NSAPI process, depending on the Web server and how you configure it.
While the Messenger participates in any HTTPS messaging to secure Web transactions over the Internet between the Web browser and Web server, OpenEdge also provides a native implementation of the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to secure the transaction between the Messenger and the WebSpeed Transaction Server on the intranet. For more information on OpenEdge SSL, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Core Business Services - Security and Auditing.
