Hello,
I am new to TDI, but so far I have been able to read and write to IBM Notes, set up a Http Server connector.
But I cannot get beyond the first step in setting up the Http Client Connector as below:

Mode: CallReply
HTTP Url: https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/distancematrix/xml

for the rest as default.

And when running this in the console it gets timed out.

When running this call in Chrome I get a nice response with the message "Invalid request". I am also expecting this reply in TDI.

How can I get this running in TDI?

Regards,
Tom

Hi Tom,
I think you left out so many details. For example: You have a mismatch Content Type, that could generate something similar to what you are seeing.

Sorry for the delay. Was not able to respond earlier.
As this is only the first step in setting up the AL and make the first and IBM suggests making small steps in setting up AL's, I expected that default settings as below would be sufficient.
I have also tried the other content types, but still get the connection timed out.

Settings of the connector are:
<Configuration>
<InheritFrom>[parent]</InheritFrom>
<ModTime>1512112999241</ModTime>
<parameter name="contentType">text/plain; charset=US-ASCII</parameter>
<parameter name="debug">true</parameter>
<parameter name="url">https://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/distancematrix/xml</parameter>
</Configuration>

The error says that you cannot connect to the target server;
while I built a quick test from my desktop without issue.
I got this response.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<DistanceMatrixResponse>
<status>INVALID_REQUEST</status>
</DistanceMatrixResponse>

So, first of all, can you try ping maps.googleapis.com from the machine that the AL is running?
