Testing with different versions it seems to fix the issue by changing any
remote help connections under Help > Contents to be https rather than http.
For older versions of RDI that have a local connection as well just leave
that one as http.

If you had the help window open before you may find that you have to close
it or close it and restart RDI for the preference changes to take

For RDI 9.5.1 there should be two links by default though you may have
added others ...

I was playing around with this and unfortunately have had no success.
Here's what I checked. All are under Windows, Preferences.

-- Under Help, no changes were made.
-- Under Help, Content, both the links provided in earlier e-mails were
used to reference the https: portion. Testing these connections however
continue to fail. Yet trying these links in a browser does bring up a home
page which was done to verify the sites are active.
-- Under Help, EXEC Statements, no changes were made. Since I don't do any
COBOL or PL/I development, this wouldn't apply to me.

But one interesting thing was noted...I have two Help, Content lines and
they bring up different content. The difference between the two is that
one brings up "Configure information centers" which gives me three
options...local help only, remote help with local priority, and remote help
with remote priority. And when I click on Restore Defaults, close the
window, then select Windows, Preferences again, one of the Help, Content
lines disappears (the one with the "Configure information centers").
Sounds like a bug there...

So what next? Is there are setting elsewhere in the Preferences that
should be looked at?

How can we get the Context-Help to work ( like for RPG Op Codes Help )

I have the same problem

When you get the failure messages, what are you doing? Are you invoking
language sensitive help and on what kind of source?

Thanks,
