[SOLVED] use https plex url with filebot node

Post by kaizo33 » 06 Aug 2019, 07:06

Hello

when i configure filebotnote with Automated Media Center, i can put url with token
the plex server I call is configured on ssl mandatory (plex config > network > secure connections > "required")
it is possible de change with https ?

example log :
Notify Plex: [host:xxxxxxxxxx, token:xxxxxxxxxxxxxx]
GET: http://xxxxxxxxxxxx:32400/library/secti ... xxxxxxxxxx
SocketException: Unexpected end of file from server

i have an error because is not "https"

thanks

FileBot will default to HTTPS if you connect via HOSTNAME instead of IP.

:idea: Note that HTTPS needs to actually work (i.e. if you need to click away SSL certificate issues when you connect with your browser, then it probably won't work) otherwise using HTTP is probably fine (as long as it's in your own private local network).

thanks it works fine when it connect via remote hostname
destination folder is mounted remote folder, and plex server is remote too (i had put and ip instead hostname)

No worries. For technical reasons (since SSL certificates are issued per HOSTNAME and generally never per IP) you generally can't have both HTTPS and connect-by-IP (unless you ignore SSL certificate errors).
