[Res] Connection reset


I get the following error when running a test suite against a particular environment:

Mon Jul 21 17:54:35 NZST 2014:DEBUG:Attempt 1 to execute request
Mon Jul 21 17:54:35 NZST 2014:DEBUG:Sending request: POST /api/Customers/afb0dcfd-f7b1-4a64-94ac-d5fb90462d0b HTTP/1.1
Mon Jul 21 17:54:35 NZST 2014:DEBUG:I/O error closing connection Connection has been shutdown: Connection reset

This test suite runs without any problems against other environments. Can you please help me figure out what could be causing this issue?


Re: Connection reset


It's an SSL-related issue. It's not obvious what would cause it for that particular environment.
How are your endpoints different? Please verify the protocol you should be using: http vs https.
And are you running the tests from the SoapUI Pro GUI?

Re: Connection reset

So my endpoints are exactly the same: ---> WORKS ---> DOESN'T WORKS

Same protocols.

Running SoapUI Pro GUI.

Re: Connection reset

By the way, they turned off SNI (Server Name Indication) and now I don't have any problems.

Could you please tell me how do I get SoapUI to work correctly with SNI?


Re: [Res] Connection reset


Each one of your HTTPS endpoints likely requires different SSL certificates. Currently, you SSL certificate should be defined in SoapUI Pro in: File > Preferences > SSL Settings.

Currently there is a limitation of specifying a single SSL cert in SoapUI Pro. There is a workaround provided for environments so that SSL certs can change dynamically. That workaround is described here: viewtopic.php?t=13014#p31789
