Synopsis :

The remote service supports encrypting traffic.

Description :

The remote Network UPS Tools service supports the use of the
'STARTTLS' command to switch from a cleartext to an encrypted
communications channel.

Since Network UPS Tools provides no configuration setting for the
server to require authentication to occur after the 'STARTTLS'
command, it is recommended that 'CERTVERIFY' and 'FORCESSL' in client
configuration files.
