Error using local https server with WebAuthenticationBroker

    Question

  • I have a local server with valid SSL certificate chain that I can access without problems using IE10 or Chrome on my win8 machine.

    However using the WebAuthenticationBroker with the very same URL that works in the desktop browsers, I am running into a timeout, the site is not displayed.

    I also get this output in the debugger:

    The top level document requested document mode <7> while the App Host is enforcing document mode <10>.

    Networkisolation is disabled for the app I am testing. Networkisolation Debug does not yield any useful informations.

    Is there a way to debug WebAuthenticationBroker?

  • Ok, I solved the connectivity issue with a nginx proxy setup inside a VM that routes back to my local machine that runs the server. So far so good. :)

  • Hi Phil,

    I am having this exact same issue right now. Any chance you could share some more details around how you fixed this? It sounds like you setup a proxy server in a machine other than the one in which you were developing your Win8 App and Service, is that correct? Any extra steps you could share would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

  • As I wrote, I used VirtualBox to run the server on a linux machine.
