    the feeds coming from an https application doesn't work, the answer is : "The RSS flux seems not valide or not available". I tested from intranet and Internet. Is there something to do in Posh ?
    Example of feed : ie.
    It works with Netvibes.

    Happy new year to Posh users !

    Hello Michael,

    Happy new year !

    You need to activate the PHP ssl extension to read https feeds. On my server, I activated the php_openssl extension to have the https feeds worked.

    Bonjour Eric,

    I activated php_openssl, restarted the server, it doesn't work yet. Here after the activated extensions, perhaps i missed something ? I continue to investigate.

    I found nothing and this is a blocking point.
    Posh is behind a proxy but http flux is ok and https is correctly read on my IE or Firefox.  Posh Is installed on a recent Wamp server.
    If someone can suggest.

    Hi Michael,

    Could you modify /includes/ file by replacing :

    $socket = @fsockopen($this->protocol.$this->server,$this->port,$errNo,$errStr,$this->timeout);
    if (!$socket) $socket = @fsockopen($this->server,$this->port,$errNo,$errStr,$this->timeout);


    $socket = fsockopen($this->protocol.$this->server,$this->port,$errNo,$errStr,$this->timeout);
    if (!$socket) $socket = fsockopen($this->server,$this->port,$errNo,$errStr,$this->timeout);

    And give us the response of the xmlvalidrss.php script using firebug (page called when you add the RSS feed url in Posh). It should contain an error message that will help to solve your issue.

    i solved the problem by removing https from the server wich delivered the rss feeds. Now it works with the http flux.

    Hello Michael,

    Nice to hear that you solved your issue. I looked at the data you sent me but this did not help me to understand the problem. I guess this is a SSL issue on your server.
