Hi Kris,

I'm almost certain that the patch will help, as it's got many improvements in the SSL handling. I need to email the dll to you, however. Can you please send me an email to support (AT) red-gate.com requesting a copy of the improved ANTS Load Engine dll? I'll send you a copy as soon as I get your email.

    Hi Brian,

    I too just installed and im trying the trial version. Only I am doing tests against the webservice itself not a webpage.

    When i add a web reference using http:// everything works fine. but the same with https:// gives me the error...

    There was a problem adding the web reference:

    Unable to create proxy wrapper for this Web Service

    Could this be related to that dll as well?

    im on the same build as Kris was above.


    EDIT: oh ya and i can surf to the https://etc.../etcetc.asmx with ie no problem and ssl is set up properly. just cant get ANTS itself to allow me to add it as a web reference.

    Hi Chris,

    Yes -- please send an email to our support address and I'll reply with the patched ANTS Load engine dll.

    There are a few issues with the evaluation version:
    • The WebClient's certificate policy does not allow expired certificates, certificates for a different server, or certificates that do not have a trusted root certifier.
    • Secure web requests are not storing cookies properly.

    The patch is designed to fix these problems by applying a blank certificate policy (overriding the default policy) and a cookie handler for secure requests.

    I have a problem with adding web refference - proxy wrapper. What can I Do? It's a matter of .dll ?

    Im not using https://

    Is the webservice using Web Services Extensions? ANTS Load cannot handle WSE under the umbrella of the proxy wrapper. This a a whole separate issue, though.
