Cannot connect using https / msxml3.dll error '80072f8f' A security error occurred
Posted on 2010-09-07
So I am a little perplexed. I have an ASP site running on Win2003 / IIS6. The ASP site makes an https connection to a WebMethods middle tier to transfer data. The code has been working for over a year and over the weekend something happened and how I am getting an error. I wrote an diagnostic program to see what was going on and I seem to be getting the following error:
msxml3.dll error '80072f8f'
A security error occurred
Can anyone please tell me why I am getting this error and What I need to do to fix it? The server is managed by a third party, I am just develop the code. the code seems to work when I use http but not https. So its definitely something with the exchange of the digital certificates.
Thanks in advance for your help.
