I need to send a CSV through HTTPS from the iSeries, I don't think this matters to my question but I plan to use HTTPAPI's http_url_post_stmf, I know that's a topic for a different newsgroup.
The client uses Certificate authentication. The certificate they provided was a .p12 extension. We have done certificate authentication from the iSeries in the past, but only with FTP. No one here has much experience with it. I have none.
We have two technical hurdles I hope someone can help with:
1.) Our Operations VP attempted to load the .p12 Certificate. He received an error in Work with CA certificates: An error occurred during certificate validation. The issuer of the certificate may not be in the certificate store or the issuer may not be enabled.
Both the client and IBM told us we need the Root and Intermediate certificates. The client provided them, and the VP loaded them. When he tried to load the .p12 Certificate, the same error reoccurred.
I don't know if the message reoccurrence is related to the second question. If the Root/Intermediate certificates were loaded incorrectly I imagine it could cause the problem to continue.
2) The Operations VP incorrectly assumed I was doing FTP and used that option to load the Certificates. When I told him I was transferring through HTTPS he told me that's not one of his options in Digital Certificate Manager. He gave me a print screen that included:
IBM Directory Server publishing
IBM Directory Server client
IBM I TCP/IP FTP Client
IBM I TCP/IP Telnet Client
SNDTWEET by Kisco
IBM I TCP/IP SMTP Client
How should he load the certificates for transferring from the iSeries via HTTPS?
Might loading those Root/Intermediate certificates with the correct method for HTTPS usage correct our initial problem of loading the .p12 file?
Any insight I can get on this is much appreciated!
