Title: Wired TLS handshake error
Post by: MoniaS on September 18, 2018, 04:32:29 PM
Im using BTCD ( (

Im connecting to the JSON-RPC with a WebSocket connection.

But I'm getting this bizarre error when I'm on a windows machine,

 http: TLS handshake error from tls: first record does not look like a TLS handshake

I looked everywhere and with no luck no a single solution, I have found a temporary workaround by using --notls flag.
The problem is that now I have to use LND and thus cannot use the --notls flag.

I have no idea what to try anymore if anyone could help I would be thrilled!
Thanks! :D

I can't really help you about this, since I am unfamiliar with BTCD.
But since no one is replying to you, here's a fellow recently trying to solve an issue with connecting to RPC on a computer running BTCD

He did mention something about certificates at the beginning of that topic.
If this doesn't mean anything to you, you could PM him, as he seems to know a bit or two about running BTCD and using it's RPC.
