Does socket work with HTTPS (SSL) secure URL's?
By the lack of replies to these posts... I'm worried it does not:
I'm still learning the nuances of Socket, and I've found almost all the example scripts I found use just HTTP (or FTP) and are mostly for in-design, so I'm posting this here figuring you guys have th emost experience.
The socket object has no cryptographic protocol implementation.
Using an external script (applescript or vbscript, depending on operating system) for communication is one way around this problem. I don't say it's a good way, but it would give access to objects such as MSXML2.XMLHTTP (a windows component) with https support.
Thanks for the confirmation.
Thats exactly what I did. I wrote a small external script that then gets excecuted by extendscript to extract the data. its a work around... but I was hoping I didnt' have to do that.
