"URL Get HTTP Document.vi" seems not to work if used with a https URL. I get an error 18000 (Internet Toolkit: Invalid URL protocol). Is it just me (I'm a bit outdated, using LV 2011) or is it actually a limit of the function? Are there alternatives for https protocol?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You should not use the function from the Internet Toolkit. This indeed does not support HTTPS, as it is written fully in LabVIEW and that does not allow SSL sockets.
You should instead use the HTTP Client VIs in the TCP Palette. These functions call an external library that uses internally curl and that does support HTTPS.
