I’m having trouble making a URL connection to a site using an API that I’ve been using with them for years. My code hasn’t changed. The API hasn’t changed. The site hasn’t changed. And it works on Windows. But of course Apple with their puritanical hyper-scared need for security is not working. This is the error I get:
An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made.
OK. So what is needed to get around this. Like I said - it works just fine on Windows.
How do I make this work in MacOS? What new hoops do I have to jump through. No, my app is not sandboxed. It is not and will not be a store app.
Well, I’ve worked around this by adding the plist entry to allow insecure arbitrary site connections. For some reason it wouldn’t work when I specified the global cache site. Maybe I needed to add the port number.
But now it’s working. I would still like to understand why it fails when I have the https in place in the URL. I’d rather have it be secure. What I don’t know is this something in Xojo that is broken or is it a problem with the website I am accessing?
