We had developed a simple interface using cfhttp to post to a
secure URL (<cfhttp method="post" port="443"
url="https://web..."> with formfields under MX 7.1. It had been
working fine for months, but after replacing our server's SSL
certificate with an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate from
Geotrust, the function returns a "Connection failure" message. We
replaced the cfhttp tag with the cfx_http5 routine and everything
works fine again.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? It appears to be a
bug in cfhttp.
