Airport Data HTTPS

Post by kiwikieran » Thu Jul 26, 2018 9:17 pm

I have been able to get the JSON/VRS Site secured with SSL using Stunnel which is very easy,
How ever I am getting warnings for the Airport Data images being http loaded over https, Has any one had luck with getting this https to?

Did you fix this ? i noticed your site serves the planes images. I also noticed your ssl cert is with lets encrypt did you set it to auto renew as they only last 90 days ? can you elaborate little bit how you setup/installed stunnel

many thanks

Interesting, I wonder if vrs uses the airport-data.com api to pull the images?. It might be worth messaging airport-data.com and see if they would be willing to implement ssl via lets encrypt? maybe they are not aware it is free. I noticed in a previous post here viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1587&p=7816&hilit=ssl#p7816 someone mentioned haproxy and cloudflare, maybe you could try using haproxy with lets encrypt ?
