I first communicated with a new system via
response = system.net.httpPost(interface_url, "text/xml", message) where
interface_url was using http.
The system allows you to configure it to communicate SSL (install a cert we provide on its server and check require SSL and Require Client certificates in IIS Manager) and I would like to try getting this working as they describe (to lock down who can communicate with this system to only those with the correct client cert).
If I configure their system’s IIS Manager to ‘Require SSL’ and switch my calls to https, it works but not if you select Require client certificates.
I have a client cert and we can communicate with the system (outside of Ignition) if it is installed on the machine we are communicating from.
Looking at the Ignition documentation for the
system.net.httpPost call, I don’t think there is a spot where I can specify the location of the client cert… or perhaps I should try installing the client cert on the Ignition server?
