HTTPS Client

It seems that the latest NX firmware v1.4.65 has the ability to be an HTTPS client. This is from the release notes;
  • [FONT=Calibri,sans-serif][FONT=Arial,sans-serif]The NX master controller can act as an SSH and HTTPS client for communication with RMS and third party devices with secure control.[/FONT][/FONT]
I can't seem to find any documentation on this. Anybody know anything?

    I was wondering too....perhaps its based on the port you use to connect. 443 means https, and 80 is http. Not sure though, as I haven't updated a controller to the new FW yet.

    You could be right but there is nothing to intimate that on the web interface and I've asked around and nobody seems to know anything yet.
    I'll keep asking.

    I'm assuming this is just referencing some TLS libraries that have now made their way into firmware as there's nothing net in NetLinx.axi to map anything useful to NetLinx functions. I've reached out to tech support for some further info and will post when I hear back.

    I've already asked AMX OZ some weeks ago with no response.
    I've contacted someone in AMX USA who is on the case for me. They didn't know much at this stage but pointed me to page 131 in this document; http://www.amx.com/assets/manuals/Ne...renceGuide.pdf
    They also mentioned that it may have something to do with JDKv1.7 which has these capabilities built in.

    Just in case somebody's looking here and hasn't heard yet.
    The NetLinx functions TLS_CLIENT_OPEN and SSH_CLIENT_OPEN are now available.
    I've tested and used both successfully.
