Hi,

I tried https://www.paypal.com/

But I get the same error as before. Am I missing some thing?

I am working with java 1.5.0_07
May be I need a new one that has javax.net.ssl ?

javax.net.ssl has been in the JDK for a while, so your version is OK. Do you have a direct connection, or do you maybe need to set up a proxy? Can you make HTTP connections?

Thanks!

I did go over trying to connect to regular URL.

I used
URL google = new URL("http://www.google.com/");
URLConnection gl = google.openConnection();

And it did not work.

I was giving me an error at "google.openConnection()"

So, then I used my local web site at work and it worked fine.

So the problem is probably due to the openConnection() method.
Do I have to use openConnection(Proxy proxy) ?
And how do I get the proxy information?

Thanks again for all the help and guidance.

Many articles describe how URLConnection and its subclasses can be used with a proxy: Google is your friend
