Hi, Is your coldfusion server also running over https using the same ssl certificate? Is it self-signed certificate? Regards, Nimit

Good morning Nimit, thanks for your response. No, we aren't running the coldfusion server over https. Yes, is a self-signed certificate and we converted to correct format with the java keytool

If you are using self-signed certificate then configure ColdFusion to run over SSL using the same certificate. It should work fine. If you still find any issue then let us know.

I configured coldfusion to run over SSL enabling the RMI over SSL with the same certificate that we are using for the websocket, then i tested my websocket application again and the result was the same: "unable to connect to the websocket"

PKCS12 format was not working properly. This issue is fixed and fix will be available as part of upcoming update of ColdFusion 11.
