Re: SOAP and SSL
- Greetings -
Not sure if you've figrued out this problem, but I'll throw out my
solution for the archives!
I ran into a similar problem with my web service - they didn't use an
issuing Certificate Authority that Windows trusts by default. I had
to download a copy of their CA certificate (a .CER file) and install
it by hand. My web service provider advertised this .CER file
elsewhere on the site.
To install in Windows, you just double-click the .CER file and go
through the wizard to install it to the default location (I've not
tried this on any other OS). Perl seemed to find it from wherever
this "default" location is. Sorry for the vague details, but I hope
This post also relates to the thread...
including message number 4324.
