Full Version: HTTPS support on WIMBOOT

I could boot into WinPE environment with WIMBOOt on HTTP protocol
But it will display "Could not start download:Operation not supported (http://ipxe.org/3c092083)" when I change to HTTS protocol (change wimboot download URL from http to https)
For example :
Original : kernel http://xxxxxx/wimboot
Current : kernel https://xxxxxx/wimboot

I had add the web certificate during iPXE built.
Might I know if it is caused by WIMBOOT is only support HTTP protocol but not HTTPS ?

This is not related to wimboot in any way (wimboot just loads what is available in memory)

To have https support in iPXE you have to enable DOWNLOAD_PROTO_HTTPS as described at https://ipxe.org/crypto
The error url in the message you got have some other https related information in case you already have HTTPS enabled - and that information fits quite good with you mentioning adding a certificate during build.
Hi Nikize

Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for quick advice
Yes, you are right, it is not related to wimboot since it is used to create virtual filesystem on memory.

It is my fault that I consider I have enabled DOWNLOAD_PROTO_HTTS in general/config.h.
After enable the DOWNLOAD_PROTO_HTTPS, I could successfully chainboot via HTTPS.
Many thanks for your help Smile
