There are three elements which need to be updated in the services node:

  1. Change the behaviorConfiguration node from GPLegacyStaticMetadataBehavior to GPDynamicMetadataBehavior.
  2. Change the bindingConfiguration node from WSHttpBindingTarget to WSHttpBindingTargetSSL.
  3. Add a new https baseAddress line using the new port and the externally accessible DNS hostname:
    <add baseAddress="https://SERVER.msdynamicsgp.co.uk:48666/Dynamics/GPService"/>
<service name="Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.WebServices.Contract.DynamicsGP" behaviorConfiguration="GPDynamicMetadataBehavior">
        <endpoint address="Mex" name="http" binding="customBinding" bindingConfiguration="CustomBinding" contract="IMetadataExchange"/>
        <endpoint address="GPService" name="GPWebService" binding="wsHttpBinding" bindingConfiguration="WSHttpBindingTargetSSL" contract="Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.WebServices.Contract.IGPServices"/>
        <host>
          <baseAddresses>
            <add baseAddress="http://SERVER:48620/Dynamics/GPService"/>
            <add baseAddress="https://SERVER.msdynamicsgp.co.uk:48666/Dynamics/GPService"/>
