Can't connect to custom deployed Rocket.Chat using mobile apps (iOS or Android)


#1

Hi Everyone,

I installed a server to test Rocket.Chat.
This server is located behind a Reverse-Proxy (HTTPS to HTTP).
On this Proxy I have a self signed certificate

Chat works on WEB and desktop application.

But on mobile applications I can not even connect

On Android I have this error message: failed to connect to server: abort.abort

Can any one help me on this issue

Thanks and best regards
Santhosh

This right here will be the issue.

Especially on iOS where such is not possible. You would have to make the phones trust the certificate.

That or get a valid cert via letsencrypt

We’re working to support self-signed certificate in the future from our App Store / Google Play apps, but for now in order to use it, just follow @aaron.ogle advice and use LetsEncrypt if you can.
