Description Jeff Marino 2011-12-21 10:13:14 UTC
I'm trying to unit test some basic System.Net.WebClient code to download a string using an HTTPS endpoint.  It seems that using HTTPS from within the NUnit test fails no matter what.  I can use HTTP within the NUnit test without issue.  I can run the HTTPS code in a Console application without issue.

Here's the code...

    		public void TestWebclientHttp()
    			using (System.Net.WebClient wc = new System.Net.WebClient())
    				string data = wc.DownloadString("http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=alvis%20court&sensor=true");
    		public void TestWebClientHttps()
    			using (System.Net.WebClient wc = new System.Net.WebClient())
    				string data = wc.DownloadString("https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/geocode/json?address=alvis%20court&sensor=true");

Here's the stack trace...

I don't think it's a monodevelop problem. Does it work with nunit on command line ?
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2012-03-28 09:16:57 UTC
I get the same exception in a console application. I can't see a way that the unit tests can interfere with that.
