It is possible for 4D Client to accept web service calls with SSL. The following needs to be done to achieve this:

  1. The 4D Server must have the appropriate licenses to have a 4D client accept web service calls.
  2. On the 4D Client, the Preference "Allow SSL for Web Server" must be checked.
  3. The cert.pem and key.pem files must be moved into the client database folder. Which can be found in the following location:
    • Vista: {Disk}:\Users\Current user\AppData\Local\4D\DatabaseName_Address
    • Windows XP: {Disk}:\Documents and Settings\Current user\Local Settings\Application Data\DatabaseName_Address
    • Mac OS: {Disk}:Users:User:Library:Caches:4D:DatabaseName_Address:
