The Listeners tab allows you to specify the protocol and ports that the Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) will use to send/receive traffic. When you first create a new ELB, it's automatically set up with one listener already predefined. By default, an ELB will be configured to listen over HTTP on port 80 and forward traffic to port 80 on the receiving EC2 instances, which are typically your application servers. (HTTP; 80->80)
For SSL communications, select the 'HTTPS' protocol and select a Security Certificate.
