The special agent vsphere to monitor ESX-Servers and vcenters can be configured to use a non-standard port for the vsphere https connection. This might be useful for firewall traversals etc.

The configuration was possible before this fix in WATO, but it was never used, so that the default https port 443 was always used.

With this fix the port which is actually configured in WATO will be used for https.

If a vcenter is queried including the check_mk_agent, the check_mk_agent will still be queried on the standard check_mk_agent port 6556, whereas the https connection port will be the one configured in WATO.
