Hi,

In the documentation  I see there is a encrypted port 8002 to communicate with the web API using a certificate from VC. I can't get the encrypted version to work. Any documentation for that? Where do I find this certificate?

I can find 3 links in there with port 8002 in the 1. REST section of the documentation .
But nothing about how to connect encrypted.

https://localhost:8002/visualcron/text/job/list?token=[token]
https://localhost:8002/visualcron/xml/job/list?token=[token]
https://localhost:8002/visualcron/json/job/list?token=[token]

(yellow = wrong link)

Regards
Erik

It should be possible to Connect to encrypted using the link. What is wrong with the link?

When you startup VisualCron certificates are created and the port is setup. You should see any related error during startup if that part fails (in log_serverDATE.txt).

Hi,

Clicking on the link opens up IE with the URL: https://localhost:8002/VisualCron?wsdl
The URL looks fine.

The browser gives me 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage' with no further explanation.
The log_serverDATE.txt doesn't have entries me trying opening the encrypted page.

Where are the certificates created?

Regards,
Erik

(The yellow in my 1st post shows that the link in the documentation isn't correctly setup when you hover over. The last ']' is wrong for the last two links. That's just a documentation issue)

It is the same "myvc" certificate that is used for other communication in VisualCron. Stored among other certificates on the computer.

I still do not understand what is wrong with the last two links - can you say exactly what is wrong with it by saying what it *should* be?

These are just typos in the documentation for the last character ']'. It is outside the link. I think the link selection went wrong.

it's now:
<a href="/job/list?token=[token">/job/list?token=[token</a>]
and it should be:
<a href="/job/list?token=[token]">/job/list?token=[token]</a>

Just a minor detail.😊

The certificate issue is strange.. I looked at mmc and added the certificate add-in to see the certificates.
I have three visualcron certificates, two myvc's and one vc. Do I need two myvc certificates?

I see, thanks 😁

You can try to delete all (myvc and vc) - then restart the service - and VisualCron will re-create.

Hi,

I deleted all three of them, restarted the service and all three were recreated.
When I go to the 8002 encrypted port, I still have the error: Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Do I need to do something else here to get this to work?

I can't find any entry about connecting to the web api. Not for the 8001 nor for the 8002 port.

Please make sure that you have checked "Allow Web API" and then enable Extended debugging and restart the service. Then please send log_serverDATE.txt to us.
