?path=https://... not working.

Hi, I am trying to use Freewheel on our site, and our site runs over SSL. Therefore the URL I pass via the path= parameter is https://. When I do this, I get the following error:


The requested DWF is not valid.


If I use http:// it works just fine. Also, I can see from my HTTP server log that I am in fact sending the file over HTTP or HTTPS, so the only difference would be the server certificate validation that is happening within your software.


I imagine this must be because our certificate is not valid as far as your HTTPS client is concerned. The UserAgent shows WinHttp.WinHttpRequest.5, which I assume is a Microsoft HTTP component you are using. Are you by chance missing the GlobalSign root certificate on your servers?


Thank you for your consideration.

I tried a different https:// site with a certificate from GoDaddy and it worked fine.


I am fairly certain now that it is this specific certificate (more accurately, the CA).
