    CFHTTP

    annabannana Level 1
      Hi all,

      OK i have found loads of people having this same problem however i am unable to find a solution that works for me.

      The issue is that i need to access a third party service which sits on a 128 bit encrypted machine and everytime i hit the URL i get the words "CONNECTION FAILURE" even though i can put the URL into the browser and view the XML as i need to.

      It is fine when i put the url http://myurl.com but the issues is simply around https://myurl.com

      Surley somebody has come across this or there is a patch available or on the way????

      I found this link on the web but it did NOT work as i hoped it might - ( http://www.talkingtree.com/blog/index.cfm?mode=entry&entry=25AA75A4-45A6-2844-7CA3EECD842D B576 )
      So when i try to run the keytool to import the cert you get the error not an x.509 cert..


      This seems to be around for years - why is this?

      All help very much appreciated!

          What version of coldfusion? cfmx7 has better support for certificates and certifcate chains. I believe there are problems with certificate chaining in cfmx6. Not sure about 6.1.

              It may be rejecting the connection because it doesn't see a user agent. You can use CFHTTPPARAM to add
              "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)"
              to your CFHTTP request.

                  no this in not the issue - it is got to do with the fact that their server is 128 bit encry[ted and i was told that 56 bit is that max cfhttp can post to - is that true?
