OK, so apparently it was the same certificates issue, just a different error
message. Solution was:


using System.Security.Cryptography;
using System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates;
using System.Net.Security;
( other than X509 these may have already been present - didn't check)

In the class constructor:

ServicePointManager.ServerCertificateValidationCallback = new

and the call back itself:

public static bool DummyCertValidationCb(object sender, X509Certificate
certificate, X509Chain chain, SslPolicyErrors sslPolicyErrors)
	   // we could actually test for a valid certificate here but in this case
we don't care....
            return true;
