So have been experimenting quite happily with my ethernet shield.....however have come across a small problem.
I'm trying to send a 'get' request to a 'HTTPS' page....
Set the port to 443 instead of 80:
Client client(server, 443);
and add the request:
client.println("GET /secure/rx_test.asp?d=1 HTTP/1.1");
This connects fine and returns 'connected', however nothing else...it just sits there. I'm presuming its waiting for a response to a challenge or something?
I've tried the IP/URL in a browser and all as expected so the URL is good and I've tried other HTTP URLs and are all fine.
Unfortunately, I do not have any control over the HTTPS server side settings (except scripting) though I see sites such Pachube manage/advertise HTTPS? So it must be possible?
Any pointers/help would be much appreciated...
