Hello George,


What is likely happening is that you are being caught in a redirect rule. We will look into this, but in the meantime I would avoid starting a thread with vsp. I have changed your title slightly so that you can access it again.

This redirect is causing more problems than you suspect?

Hello Bert

With the issue I have been having with access denied on the API have been going back and trying to find the api documentation - this link

"You can find full documentation for the API here:

is in this forum and guess what everything in this area goes straight the vsp default form - woops!


I also suspect my core issue is the api server is only working properly with the TLS 1.3 on the internet server software and rejecting TLS 1.2 which is probably a step to far and TLS 1.3 is only just been finalised in last couple of years and there will be a lot of legacy code which might never catch up. Could this be another issue or am I way off the mark?
