I'm trying to post data to a secure webserver. If I run the webserver and my client application on the same box then all is ok (using a key created for localhost).
If I generate a key for the webserver for my IP address and then try to hit it from another machine, the handshake seems to go ok until I get a
"HTTPS hostname wrong: should be <my ip address>" (where my ip address is my actual IP address.
In the past when I've seen this error it has been followed by
", but cert says <host>" or something similar.
The IP address used in the public key seems to match the IP I'm specifying as the address "https://my ip address:442/testwebserver".
I'm confused... any suggestions?
