Login failed error when trying to log in to Enterprise Server from Smart Connection

When trying to log in to Enterprise Server using Smart Connection, the following error appears:

Login failed.

A communication error occurred (HTTP:0) - SSL certificate problem:

self signed certificate in certificate chain (60)

The SSL error


This can occur when the required SSL certificate is not present and/or the WWSettings.xml file is not configured properly.


Step 1. Install the SSL certificate into the Root Certificates on the local system.

Step 2. Export the certificate as a .perm file to a location that is accessible by Smart Connection.

Example (Mac OS): <user account>/Library/Application Support/WoodWing/

Note: On Mac OS, use Keychain Access to export the certificate.

Step 3. Access the WWSettings.xml file.

Step 4. Locate the following line and un-comment it:

<SCEnt:SSL enable="true" cacertPath="certificate_path"/>

Step 5. Replace certificate_path by the path to the certificate.

Example (Mac OS):<SCEnt:SSL enable="true" cacertPath="/Library/Application Support/WoodWing/Cert123.pem"/>

Note: Make sure that the correct quotation marks are used, as shown in the example above.

Step 6. Save the WWSettings.xml file.

Important: Make sure to validate the WWSettings.xml file for correct content. See Validating the WWSettings.xml file.

Step 7. Restart Smart Connection and try to log in to Enterprise Server again.
