I'm an Adobe Acrobat newbie, and am having issues submitting a PDF form to an HTTPS server. My basic setup is as follows:
1) PDF Form with one text field and a single submit button pointing to a https URL. The button submits in the XDP format.
2) A server which can only be accessed through SSL and has a valid SSL certificate
I get the following error when I hit the submit button in Adobe Reader 9:
"An error has occurred during the submit process. The server has an invalid SSL certificate."
I tried the following:
1) Adding the SSL certificate to the Manage Trusted Identities, and pressing the submit button. Same error.
2) After installing the certificate, going to Edit -> Preferences -> Security -> Advanced Preferences, and checking the box for Enable searching the Windows Certificate store for certificates other than your own. Same error.
I've tested the servlet by posting through a .NET application and it works fine. Am I missing something here?
I've fixed this problem. Turns out my windows certificate store didn't have the Root certificate for my website added in it. I just found the root certificate online and installed it into the "Trusted Root Certification Authorities" store in windows. I then went to Edit -> Preferences -> Security -> Advanced Preferences, and checked the box for Enable searching the Windows Certificate store. Works like a charm now.
