I am trying to access a corporate internal web API using:
require(httr) url = 'https://my_server/api/search/query?q=stuff' httr::set_config( config(ssl_verifypeer = 0L) ) data <- httr::GET( url, use_proxy(url = "ipaddress:port"), verbose() )
-> CONNECT my_server:port HTTP/1.1 -> Host: my_server:port -> User-Agent: libcurl/7.47.1 r-curl/0.9.7 httr/1.1.0 -> Proxy-Connection: Keep-Alive -> <- HTTP/1.1 200 Connection established <- Error in curl::curl_fetch_memory(url, handle = handle) : SSL connect error
ssl_verifypeer as there are issues with the CA cert of the server. is that what is causing the issue with the
SSL connect error ?
How do I bypass this and get the data?
is there a way to flick the
--insecure option that exists if you run in the linux command line? Note I am running R on windows though.
