Hi,

the following test (as well as many others I tested with certificate errors on the web site) gives error
---------------------------
HostMonitor
---------------------------
Error: cannot retrieve data from URL: https://nyt.com:443/
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

whereas it shouldn't because you can view that site with a browser and I configured IgnoreUnknCA= Yes. I checked with an old HM 8.60 and HM 8.82.


Please fix.

As usually - nothing to fix
Your server returns HTTP code 301. That's why test status is "Bad".

It redirects you to http://nyt.com so you may check this URL.

Well, I think there is something "to fix".

The idea of that test is to check if a page has changed. So I should be able to check the CRC of what is given back. That way I would be notified as soon as the webmaster exchanged that 301 for [whatever].

See it that way: I don't want to debug SSL encrypted traffic but to ensure I get informed if the server gives a different reply.


Thank you.

P.S. I would need to setup a debug environment with a sniffer, ssltunnel, HM, etc just to know why HM refuses to do what I'm asking it to do. Thats's pretty much effort, don't you think? And are all HM-Admins network engineers?

I cannot agree.

I do not see any problem here. If you want to set Ok status for some "bad" HTTP codes, use Optional Status Processing options.
E.g. you may set [Use Normal status if '%httpcode%'=='301'] option

sniffer, ssltunnel? What for?
We already checked your web site and I told you why HostMonitor sets Bad status. You do not trust us?
