SSL certificate error

I developed a tool to download files from sharepoint documnet Lib to server file location that use SSL(https).I cam up with error and I found the solution related to certificate policy
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823177/ 

Looks like version different .I cant use the code below.


THis is my class
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Imports System.Net
Imports System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates
Public Class MyPolicy
  Implements ICertificatePolicy

  Public Function CheckValidationResult(ByVal srvPoint As ServicePoint, _
                ByVal cert As X509Certificate, ByVal request As WebRequest, _
                ByVal certificateProblem As Integer) _
            As Boolean Implements ICertificatePolicy.CheckValidationResult
    'Return True to force the certificate to be accepted.
    Return True
  End Function
End Class

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the code i am using code before web service call.

System.Net.ServicePointManager.CertificatePolicy = New MyPolicy()


My Issue:

when i use the code line above It is saying
'System.Net.ServicePointManager.CertificatePolicy' is obsolete , please use ServerCertificateValidationCallback.

I search on the net but nothing stright forward.
Anyone come across same issue.




I am using VS 2008

This solution is not good to use in production environment. This code bypass validation of certificate. I would suggest to create certificate as described in following link
