Hi All,

I am facing this problem in my very simple https java client, which tries to open a connection with an https host.

I have found many people facing the same problem but could not manage to get a concrete solution.

Here is my very simple https java client.

Error response:

Strange thing is when I try to open the same url on my browser, I get the response xml perfectly fine, but when I try to invoke the url through my client program, it given me this exception.

Another thing, i have noted that is when I put the url "", in my browser, it automatically removes the 443 port before it shows the response. On my removing the 443 port in my client program, it does not make any difference. I still get the same error message.

I also tried to use the keystore.jks, which i generated after downloading the .cer from my browser, but I still get the same error.

I am sort of very confused as to how I can connect to this server and get the response back?
