I am not sur if I have understantd everything here. I want to do a simple HTTPS POST with the VI from the palette.
On the first page of the topic rolf you wrote that :
"The HTTP Cient VIs unter "Protocols/Data Communication/Http Client" in recent LabVIEW versions should be able to handle HTTPS just fine. You may have to add the according certificate to the connection before doing a request, if the site in question doesn't use a certificate that can be traced back to one of the preinstalled root certificates."
And it is exactly what I want to do
I have a certificate, I have followed these instruction to import it on my PC : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/import-export-certificates-private-keys#1TC=windows-7
But when I put https in the url, the post VI give me this error :
Error 363507 occurred at LabVIEWHTTPClient.lvlib:POSTFile.vi:3390001
LabVIEW: LabVIEW could not verify the authenticity of the server.
Complete call chain:
Do you have an idea of what can be the problem?
Thank you in avdance
The HTTPS VIs do not make use of the standard Windows certificate store. This is quite understandable since they need to work on other platforms than Windows too. They are implemented using an independent SSL library, either the OpenSSL library or another one that NI might have purchased a license for. You will need to import the certificate directly into the session through the use of the Securty->ConfigSSL VI.
