i’m writing this post because I am recently stuck in an issue connecting the BrightSign Player to a local webserver.
A quick summary, so that you know what the situation looks like.
I’m running a Nextcloud installation with Collabora/Code inside Docker on a local webserver. Since Collabora prefers https over http, the communication with the server is SSL encrypted with a selfsigned certificate. The idea behind that is to make office files accessable with the BrightSign Player.
Well, I know BrightSign Players aren’t made for a scenario like that. Anyways, I can access the webserver and the Nextcloud Installation perfectly fine from my browser on my computer, but accessing the webserver from the BS-Player only displays the default background.
I already added the CA-Certificate with the plugin from github, means defining the plugin in the autostart, manually added the .crt file to the presentation and create a Variable.
Now, the player obviously checks for the certificate and finds it,
[ 25.328] + Open userVariables.db
[ 25.471] + Cert Variable found: server.crt
[ 25.471] + Found Cert: pool/7/3/sha1-6f616c4a08a063ec199e7c9784bcf2ed167d2273
[ 25.488] SYSC_close: 2007 callbacks suppressed
[ 25.488] brightsign(1395):close(58) returning EBADF
[ 25.635] SignalDispatcher received signal 17
[ 25.635] + successfully added certificate
[ 25.635] + Cert Variable found: server.crt
[ 25.635] + Found Cert: pool/7/3/sha1-6f616c4a08a063ec199e7c9784bcf2ed167d2273
[ 25.801] SignalDispatcher received signal 17
[ 25.801] + successfully added certificate
but when trying to connect to the local webserver, the Player writes a certificate Error
[ 28.784] Certificate error(-202) when connecting to "https://<example.cloud>". Cannot connect to host.
I tried a lot for the past 48h or so, and I really have no clue what the problem is. I cannot find anything on the web for this specific topic.
I hope you guys can help me, or maybe you got a hint or Tipps for me
Thanks in advance and best regards,
