Problem with SSL connection through terminal/ssh


#1

Hi, I’m trying to connect to a external server, using HTTPS, through the terminal of my VPS. But it seems that the certificate is being refused or something like that.

The link I’m trying to access is:

https://reportingitc.apple.com/autoingestion.tft

The command line I’m typing is:

java Autoingestion USERNAME PASSWORD VENDORID Sales Daily Summary 20110823
(the parameters are irrelevant, the errors are the same, independent of the parameters)

Using this call, I get the errors below. Does anyone have an ideia about how to fix that? I contacted the dreamhost support and they said external connections should work fine. In my note, if I use the same command, it works as expected and download my daily report. The decompiled code of Autoingestion class is available at this link:
