      Description

      I'm trying to get SSL communication going with Axis2/C for our application. To this end, I have followed the instructions from the manual, i.e.,

      http://ws.apache.org/axis2/c/docs/axis2c_manual.html#ssl_client

      So far, I have configured the axis2.xml file to add the transportReceiver and transportSender and I am using the server's certificate (as explained in the manual using openssl to get the certificate) to set the SERVER_CERT parameter in the axis2.xml file. With this setup, everything works fine for me.

      Now, I have to mention that I'm not interested in SSL client authentication. All I'm interested in is that the communication between the client and our servers is encrypted. So, what I have not been able to do is get rid of the step of setting the SERVER_CERT parameter as i receive an error in http_sender.c stating that "status_code < 0".

      I'm thus wondering whether it's possible to not set the SERVER_CERT parameter (and I believe that this should be possible) and, if so, how I could accomplish this task.
