Our customer is using highly secure network and restricted us to make a call to backend url which uses "https:\\....".
In side webservice we are using "http:\\..." namespaces.
Any idea why firewall restricted us to perform a call over a https:\\...backend.
Any help will be highly applicable.
Anyone following this forum may have a suggestion to resolve Ankit's issue? Thanks.
The reason why they want you to make https calls only is that these connections are encrypted.
Inside the firewall you could probably use http instead of https, but all outside connections need to be https.
Thanks Jean for highlighting my issue in the forum.
Thanks for reply.
You said outside connection should be "https:\\". Yes we have the Backend with https not with http. But while sending request to this https:\\..backend it is throwing me a timeout error because firewall doesn't allow to make a call to that https:\\ backend. In the request I am using HTTP namespace URIs. Does these namespaces have something to do with these restriction? is there any possibility of such things?
default port for https is 443
does firewall pass that?
Thanks Gus. I will check with them if they restricted 443.
