    Not really a B4A problem as such.

    My app uses a web-service to retrieve and upload data to a central database.
    This works most of the time but on the odd occasion the http job gets a certificate error.
    The certificates are OK and other users with other tablets can continue to use the service while one user is stuck. It is not always the same user / tablet and they do suddenly start working again for no apparent reason. I have checked the date and time on the tablet as I know this can cause certificate errors but it is correct.

    Is there a way to 'ignore' the certificate error in the http job like you can if you log into a website and get the option to continue in a browser?

    I know this is not a good idea but until I find out why it happens I can't leave the users out there with a dead app.

    Or, if anyone has experienced other causes of this error I would love to know.

    Many thanks in advance

    Thanks Erel,
    A couple of quick questions though...
    Will this make the connection to the web service insecure or will there still be some level of encryption?
    Where can I find the latest version of the source? The only one I can find does not seem to match the link.

    Hi Erel. I have this version working with the amended initialize method now.
    Many thanks for your assistance.
