QNetworkReply does not return requests with expired SSL certificates. Workaround?
I have a https connection with expired or self issued certificate. If I want to use a code like:
@reply = manager->get("https.... not valid certificate.. url");@
I get a QNetworkReply::sslErrors signal (QList<QSslError>) like:
"The host name did not match any of the valid hosts for this certificate", "No error"
and a QNetworkReply::error signal: QNetworkReply::SslHandshakeFailedError
(in two different signal, both are signaled).
After this QNetworkAccessManager::replyFinished signal is signaled but returns just an empty string, nothing is read from the host.
How can I read anyway https replies without having a valid certificate?
If I read http, the code works fine.
Thanks for ideas!
Answer found after reading documentation:
void QNetworkReply::ignoreSslErrors() [virtual slot]
If this function is called, SSL errors related to network connection will be ignored, including certificate validation errors.
Note that calling this function without restraint may pose a security risk for your application. Use it with care.
This function can be called from the slot connected to the sslErrors() signal, which indicates which errors were found.
@QNetworkReply::sslErrors ( const QList<QSslError> & errors )@
signal documentation which states that you should call:
from the slot connect to the signal to receive the behaviour you want to..
Edit: you already found it! :-)
