FedExShipIntl Class

Properties   Methods   Events   Config Settings   Errors  

Allows you to generate a FedEx shipping label for any of FedEx international services complete with addresses and barcode, cancel a shipment, or close out the FedEx Ground shipments.

Syntax

class dshippingsdk.FedExShipIntl

Remarks

Generating a shipping label can be done by calling either the get_package_label or the get_shipment_labels method. You will have to specify the package information, FedEx service to be used for shipping this package, origin and destination information, and any other special services associated with the shipment (such as Saturday Pickup, Saturday Delivery, Hold At Locations, etc.).

This class also allows you to delete packages included in the daily shipping log that have not already been tendered to FedEx by calling the cancel_shipment method. The TrackingNumber parameter that identifies the shipment must be specified in the request along with the fed_ex_account_number.

When shipping with FedEx Ground, you can close out your shipments and generate a FedEx Ground Close Manifest by calling the close_ground_shipments method.

To use this class, you must have a FedEx fed_ex_account_number. You should also have already obtained a ClientId and ClientSecret; uniquely assigned to your account by FedEx.

NOTE: FedEx requires that all applications that print shipping labels pass a series of certification tests prior to being placed in production. The full version of FedEx Integrator gives you access to a certification package that makes this process very easy. The certification package is available by request. It includes all test scenarios required by FedEx for FedEx Express and Ground (international and domestic), and Home Delivery. Through the application included in the certification package, you can generate all shipping labels for selected scenarios applicable to your shipping needs with a click of a button.

Unique code representing this commodity line item (for imports only).

The World Trade Organization has classified all commodities with a number. This number is called a Harmonized Schedule code and ranges from six to 12 digits depending on the country.

Customs uses the HS number to determine the import duties, taxes and import license requirements for goods entering a country. This number is required for filling in the Customs documentation.

It is applicable to Invoice, Partial Invoice and NAFTA CO. Required for NAFTA CO and optional for Partial Invoice. For NAFTA CO: For each good described in commodity_description, identify the Harmonized Schedule (HS) tariff classification using the one of the country into whose territory the good is imported. This number must appear on import documentation that accompanies a shipment.

If the shipment contains non-documents item(s) (i.e., the Documents is set to False), the commodity_harmonized_code is required for each commodity line item for shipments to EU countries.

At least one occurrence is required for U.S. Export shipments if the total_customs_value is greater than 2,500 USD or if a valid U.S. Export license is required.

The commodity_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the commodity_count property.

When the shipment contains non-documents items (i.e., Documents is set to False and the shipment is considered dutiable), at least one occurrence of a commodity item is required to be entered. The commodity_manufacturer has to be provided for each commodity item included in that international shipment.

In UPS, this applies to Invoice, Partial Invoice, CO and NAFTA CO. It is required for Invoice and CO forms, and optional for Partial Invoice.

Remarks

Actual Base Charge applicable to this package.

For FedEx, this is normally specific to the payor_account_number. It is used in the FedExShip and FedExShipIntl only. When this is used, please note that for MPS the FedEx server provides the rating information in two different ways for domestic and international shipments.

In MPS domestic shipments, the rating information is available on the package level. In this case, the properties that store the rating information: package_base_charge, package_net_charge, package_total_surcharges, and package_total_discount, indicate the rate for that particular package.

While in MPS international shipments, the rating information is available on shipment level only and it is returned in the last package response. That being said, please note that: for all packages with index=0 to PackageCount - 2, the properties that store the rating information will be set to 'N/A', and in the last package (at index=PackageCount - 1, these properties will contain the rate for the whole shipment.

For UPS, this is the "transportation charge - fuel surcharge" applicable to this package. Upon a successful response, this is returned in the server reply for each package included in the shipment if SubVersion is 1701 or greater.

This is not applicable to USPS.

For Canada Post, upon a successful response, this is returned in the server reply for the package requested.

def set_package_cod_amount(package_idx: int, value: str) -> None: ...

Default Value

""

Remarks

The COD monetary value for the package.

For FedEx, this is applicable and required for Ground shipments only. If the shipment is using COD special service (i.e., the shipment_special_services is set to the corresponding value of COD), then the COD amount should be specified on package level for all packages that are going to use COD. If this is set, then the package will be considered as using the COD service.

Since Ground packages do not travel together and may be delivered at different times, you should add the value for the individual packages to be collected. On MPS Ground shipments, a COD return label will be generated for each package that uses COD service (stored in package_cod_label).

On COD Express shipments, the COD amount should be specified on shipment level and the CODTotalAmount is required instead.

For UPS, if the package_cod_amount is set to a value other than "0.00", it indicates that COD special service is requested for that package. The collection type should be specified in the request via the package_cod_type. COD special service is not valid for return service movements. Package level COD is available for shipment from US/PR to US/PR, CA to CA, and CA to US. COD service for shipment from CA to US is not allowed for package_type Letter/Envelope. COD special service is available for shipper's with pickup_type 'Daily Pickup' or 'Drop Shipping'. Delivery Confirmation (represented by package_signature_type) and COD cannot coexist on a single package.

This property is not applicable to USPS packages.

Format: Two explicit decimal positions (e.g. 100.00).

This is not applicable for Canada Post.

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

package_cod_file Property

Filename and location to save the CODLabel of this package to.

Syntax

def get_package_cod_file(package_idx: int) -> str: ...
def set_package_cod_file(package_idx: int, value: str) -> None: ...

Default Value

""

Remarks

Filename and location to save the package_cod_label of this package to. This is applicable for package(s) that use the COD service.

When the package_cod_file is set to a valid path and filename, the contents of the package_cod_label are written to disk when either the get_package_label or get_shipment_labels method is called.

This filename should have the same extension defined by label_image_type (for example, if label_image_type is set to PDF, then package_cod_file has to have .pdf extension).

If the filename exists, you can choose to overwrite it or not by setting the Overwrite config setting (which defaults to True).

This property is only applicable to FedEx shipments.

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

Image of the COD return label for this package retrieved by FedEx Server upon a successful COD ship request.

Syntax

def get_package_cod_label(package_idx: int) -> bytes: ...

Default Value

""

Remarks

Image of the COD return label for this package retrieved by FedEx server upon a successful COD ship request.

This is the decoded binary image file of the COD return label, stored in memory when either the get_package_label or the get_shipment_labels method is called. The kind of label data returned depends on the label formatting specified in your ship request via label_image_type. If you requested a PNG label, the data returned will be a PNG file. If you requested a thermal label, it will be a thermal label image. If the package_cod_file is set to a valid path and filename, the label is also saved to disk in a label_image_type format.

Since MPS Ground packages do not travel together and may be delivered at different times, a package_cod_label return label will be generated for each package that uses COD service.

On MPS Express packages, only one COD label will be generated and this will be returned on the last package of the MPS.

This property is only applicable to FedEx.

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

For FedEx, this is normally specific to the payor_account_number. It is used in the FedExShip and FedExShipIntl classs only.

When this is used, please note that for MPS the FedEx server provides the rating information in two different ways for domestic and international shipments.

In MPS domestic shipments, the rating information is available on package level. In this case, the properties that store the rating information: package_base_charge, package_net_charge, package_total_surcharges, and package_total_discount, indicate the rate for that particular package.

While in MPS international shipments, the rating information is available on shipment level only and it is returned in the last package response. That being said, please note that: for all packages with index=0 to PackageCount - 2, the properties that store the rating information will be set to 'N/A', and in last package (at index=PackageCount - 1, these properties will contain the rate for the whole shipment.

For UPS, upon a successful response to get_rates, this is returned in the server reply for each package included in the shipment.

For USPS, this specifies the postage required for mailing a package of the indicated size and weight. If this property is not supplied, it will be calculated and returned in the response.

This will also be set when an Endicia label is returned describing how much postage was charged from the Endicia account for the package.

For Canada Post, upon a successful response, this is returned in the server reply for the package requested.

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

This filename should have the same extension defined by label_image_type (for example, if label_image_type is set to GIF, then package_shipping_label_file has to have .gif extension).

If the filename exists, you can choose to overwrite it or not by setting the Overwrite config setting (which defaults to True).

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

package_signature_type Property

Specifies one of the Delivery Signature Options requested for this package.

Syntax

def get_package_signature_type(package_idx: int) -> int: ...
def set_package_signature_type(package_idx: int, value: int) -> None: ...

0

Remarks

Specifies one of the Delivery Signature Options requested for this package. Possible values are:

stServiceDefault (0) The default value for the requested service.
stAdult (1) Available for both residential and nonresidential deliveries.
stDirect (2) Available for both residential and nonresidential deliveries.
stIndirect (3) Available for residential deliveries only.
stNoSignatureRequired (4)Not available for Ground services.
stUSPSDeliveryConfirmation (5)Available for UPS Mail Innovations only.
stAdult19 (6)Available for Canada Post only.

For FedEx Express shipments, the NoSignatureRequired option will not be allowed when the following special services are requested: Alcohol, Hold At Location or Dangerous Goods.

For residential FedEx Ground International shipments from Canada to the U.S., two valid signature options are allowed: NoSignatureRequired and Direct.

The impact of signature options fees may vary depending on your agreement with FedEx. Following are the definitions for FedEx:

  • Service Default: In this case, the appropriate signature option will be selected for your shipping service. For example, if the package contains Dangerous Goods, the Direct signature option is chosen for you. The actual signature option applied to this package could be different than the signature option requested if a conflict occurred with other service features in the package. In this case, the value set in the request will be ignored.
  • Indirect Signature Required: Indicates that an indirect signature is required upon delivery. This is allowed to residential addresses only. In this case, FedEx obtains a signature in one of three ways: from any person at the delivery address, from a neighbor, building manager, or other person at a neighboring address. The recipient can sign a FedEx door tag authorizing release of the package without anyone present. This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability.
  • Direct Signature Required: Indicates that a direct signature is required upon delivery. In this case, FedEx obtains a signature from any person at the delivery address. If no one is at the address, FedEx will reattempt delivery; Direct Signature Required overrides any recipient release that may be on file for deliveries to nonresidential addresses. This option is not available for Hold at FedEx Location shipments. This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability.
  • Adult Signature Required: Indicates that the adult signature is required upon delivery. In this case, FedEx obtains a signature from any person at least 21 years old (government-issued photo identification required) at the delivery address. If no one is at the address, FedEx will reattempt delivery. Adult Signature Required overrides any recipient release that may be on file for deliveries to nonresidential addresses. This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability.

Note: In the server reply, this option may differ from that requested value due to other characteristics of the shipment.

For UPS, when delivery confirmation is requested for a package, the package_signature_type should be set to a value other than 0 (stServiceDefault). The availability of this special service depends on the service_type. The type stIndirect is not valid for UPS packages.

Also, when using UPS Mail Innovations, delivery confirmation can be requested by setting this to stUSPSDeliveryConfirmation.

Delivery Confirmation and COD cannot coexist on a single package. Also, Delivery Confirmation option cannot be combined with the Return Services option.

For USPS, if this is not set to stServiceDefault or stNoSignatureRequired, the Signature Confirmation service will be used. Also, for Express label shipments, set this to stNoSignatureRequired to waive the signature requirements.

This does not apply for Canada Post.

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

package_special_services Property

For FedEx, to request any of the special services offered for a particular package in a ship request, you must set the package_special_services of that package to a set of valid flags.

The meaning and limitations for each special service option are listed below for FedEx:

  • Appointment Delivery: Indicates that the appointment delivery special service is requested for this package. This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability.
  • Dangerous Goods: Indicates that this package contains dangerous goods. When the package_special_services contains this flag, then the package_dangerous_goods_accessible is required to be provided in the request as well. For FedEx Express services, these types of shipments are referred to as dangerous goods shipments. For FedEx Ground services, these types of shipments are referred to as hazardous materials (Hazmat) shipments. Hazmat shipments must be single package. FedEx Ground provides reliable delivery of hazardous materials in all U.S. states except Alaska and Hawaii. If you have not shipped hazardous materials with FedEx Ground before, contact your FedEx account executive first. FedEx needs to confirm that you have met government training requirements and can generate the documentation your shipments need. Additional information regarding hazardous materials shipping is provided at fedex.com/ us/services/options under the Hazardous Materials link. The Shipper's Hazardous Materials Certification report (OP-950), prints after a successful Ground close request. Please note that Hazmat shipments must be single package. If you create a multiple package (MPS) hazmat shipment, only one commodity prints on the OP-950. FedEx assesses a surcharge on each package containing dangerous goods/Hazmat materials. This might affect service availability as well.
  • Dry Ice: Indicates that this package contains dry ice. FedEx assesses a surcharge on each package containing dry ice. This might affect service availability as well.
  • Priority Alert: Indicates whether the priority alert special service is requested for this package. This is applicable to domestic shipments only. A per package surcharge is associated with Priority Alert. This is applicable for FedEx First Overnight and FedEx Priority Overnight. It can be associated with: Saturday Delivery, Hold Saturday, Hold at Location, Dangerous Goods, Dry Ice or Signature Service Option. Please note that Priority Alert requires a service contract. If you are interested in signing up for Priority Alert, contact your FedEx account executive.
  • Non Standard Container: Indicates whether this package type is a non standard container. This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability.
  • COD: Indicates that this is a COD package. This service will affect shipping rates and service availability. This is applicable for domestic FedEx Express and Ground services, except FedEx Home Delivery premium. When shipping COD via FedEx Ground, the package_cod_amount and package_cod_type must also be provided in the request.

For UPS, to request any of the special services offered for a particular package in a rate or ship request, you must set the package_special_services of that package to a set of valid flags.

The meaning and limitations for each special service option are listed below:

  • Additional Handling: Indicates that additional handling special service is requested for this package. This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability.
  • Non Standard Container: Indicates whether this package type is to be considered a large package (a non standard container). Dimensions must be 130 to 165 inches: Length + (2 x Width) + (2 x Height). This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability.

Some other special services on package level, such as COD, Delivery Confirmation, Insured Value, are already implemented respectively through the package_cod_amount and package_cod_type, package_signature_type, and package_insured_value.

This property is not applicable to USPS or Canada Post.

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

In MPS domestic shipments, the rating information is available on package level. In this case, the properties that store the rating information: package_base_charge, package_net_charge, package_total_surcharges, and package_total_discount, indicate the rate for that particular package.

While in MPS international shipments, the rating information is available on shipment level only and it is returned in the last package response. That being said, please note that: for all packages with index=0 to PackageCount - 2, the properties that store the rating information will be set to 'N/A', and in last package (at index=PackageCount - 1, these properties will contain the rate for the whole shipment.

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

This property is read-only.

package_total_surcharges Property

Syntax

def get_package_weight(package_idx: int) -> str: ...
def set_package_weight(package_idx: int, value: str) -> None: ...

Default Value

"0.0"

Remarks

Weight of this package.

For FedEx, this is required to be provided in the request. It requires one explicit decimal position in pounds or kilograms, depending on the value of the WeightUnit config, (i.e. N.N formatting).

For UPS, this is required to be provided in the request for each package contained in the shipment if package_packaging_type is set to a value other than 0 (UPS Letter). For Ground shipments, if the actual weight is less than 150 pounds, then the billable weight is 150 pounds. Air and 3 Day Select shipments will not be subject to a minimum billable weight. Format: it requires one explicit decimal position in pounds or kilograms, depending on the value of the WeightUnit config, (i.e. N.N formatting).

Note that if the service_type stUPSSurePostLessThan1LB or stUPSFirstClassMail is used, or the service_type stUPSExpeditedMailInovations is used with the package_packaging_type ptMachineables, ptIrregulars, or ptStandardFlat then the weight must be specified in ounces. The WeightUnit config will be set automatically to "OZS" if not set.

For USPS, this must be the weight in pounds and ounces of the package. Package weight cannot exceed 70 pounds. (First-Class Mail cannot exceed 13 ounces. Bound Printed Matter cannot exceed 15 pounds). On international shipments, weight limits vary by country.

The format must be in "N lbs N oz", or as an integer showing the number of ounces. For example, a package with weight 6 lbs, 8 oz can be specified as "6 lbs 8 oz" or as "104".

However, in USPS, if postage_provider is set to ppEndicia, then the format must be one explicit decimal position in ounces (i.e. N.N formatting).

For Canada Post, the weight of the parcel should be specified in kilograms (e.g. 99.999).

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

0

Remarks

The width of the package to be shipped.

For FedEx, the package_width is optional, but recommended, if "Your Packaging" is used as package_packaging_type. This is required if package_length and package_height are provided in the request. It is also required if a FedEx Express heavyweight service is selected for the shipment.

For UPS, this is the width of the package used to determine dimensional weight and therefore is recommended for all shipments.

It is required for GB to GB, and Poland to Poland shipments, and for 'Pallete' packaging type. For UPS packaging types: the length, width and height are defaulted.

Length + 2*(Width+Height) must be less than or equal to 130 IN or 330 CM. When package_width is provided in the request, then all other dimensions (package_length and package_height) are to be set as well.

For USPS, this is only required if the package is irregular and the package_packaging_type property is set to ptNonRectangular. (In this case package_width and package_height must still be set).

Note: For parcels, package_length is the measurement of the longest dimension and package_width and package_height make up the other two dimensions. package_girth is the measurement around the thickest part of the package, perpendicular to the length.

Except for Parcel Post, no mailpiece may measure more than 108 inches in length and girth combined. Parcel Post pieces measuring over 108 inches, but not more than 130 inches in combined length and girth are mailable at the applicable oversized rate.

Note that the package_length, package_width, and package_height are required for Priority Mail packages when the package_size is set to psLarge.

Note also that this applies to Endicia shipping label requests.

For Canada Post, this field should be set to the second longest dimension (3.1 digits e.g. 999.9 pattern).

The package_idx parameter specifies the index of the item in the array. The size of the array is controlled by the package_count property.

Current FedEx surcharge for this option: US$0.0412 per lb./$0.0908 per kg (US$60 minimum).
  • Pending Shipment Indicates that an email label has been requested. When this option is selected, you will need to also set the notify property to specify the email address to send to and the message to be sent. You will also need to set the MerchantPhoneNumber and EmailLabelExpirationDate configuration settings. When this option is selected a label will not be saved to the location in package_shipping_label_file, as the label will now be emailed to the recipient(s) specified in notify_email
  • Return Shipment: Indicates that the return label is requested. This might affect the shipping rates and/or service availability. In this case, the RMANumber and RMAReason can be provided in the request. When this option is selected, the return label will be returned in the server response. The recipient can then apply this return label to the return package as needed and drop the package off at a FedEx drop off location. No charges are assessed until the label is used. Express and Ground return labels are interchangeable, regardless of the original shipping service. For example, you can send the original shipment using an express service, but include a Ground return label as part of your packing documents. Express/Ground Return Labels are available for FedEx First Overnight, FedEx Priority Overnight, FedEx Standard Overnight, FedEx 2Day, FedEx Ground, FedEx Home Delivery, FedEx 2Day Freight, and FedEx 3Day Freight throughout the 50 United States. FedEx Express Saver and FedEx 1Day Freight services are not available. Also, Dangerous Goods and Hazardous Materials cannot be shipped.

Default Value

0

Remarks

This is the type of certificate store for this certificate.

The class supports both public and private keys in a variety of formats. When the cstAuto value is used, the class will automatically determine the type. This property can take one of the following values:

0 (cstUser - default)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a certificate store owned by the current user.

Note: This store type is not available in Java.

1 (cstMachine)For Windows, this specifies that the certificate store is a machine store.

Note: This store type is not available in Java.

2 (cstPFXFile)The certificate store is the name of a PFX (PKCS#12) file containing certificates.
3 (cstPFXBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or Base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in PFX (PKCS#12) format.
4 (cstJKSFile)The certificate store is the name of a Java Key Store (JKS) file containing certificates.

Note: This store type is only available in Java.

5 (cstJKSBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or Base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in Java Key Store (JKS) format.

Note: this store type is only available in Java.

6 (cstPEMKeyFile)The certificate store is the name of a PEM-encoded file that contains a private key and an optional certificate.
7 (cstPEMKeyBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or Base64-encoded) that contains a private key and an optional certificate.

Note: This store type is only available in Java and .NET.

22 (cstBCFKSBlob)The certificate store is a string (binary or Base64-encoded) representing a certificate store in BCFKS (Bouncy Castle FIPS Key Store) format.

Note: This store type is only available in Java and .NET.

23 (cstPKCS11)The certificate is present on a physical security key accessible via a PKCS#11 interface.

To use a security key, the necessary data must first be collected using the CertMgr class. The list_store_certificates method may be called after setting cert_store_type to cstPKCS11, cert_store_password to the PIN, and cert_store to the full path of the PKCS#11 DLL. The certificate information returned in the on_cert_list event's CertEncoded parameter may be saved for later use.

When using a certificate, pass the previously saved security key information as the ssl_cert_store and set ssl_cert_store_password to the PIN.

Code Example. SSH Authentication with Security Key: certmgr.CertStoreType = CertStoreTypes.cstPKCS11; certmgr.OnCertList += (s, e) => { secKeyBlob = e.CertEncoded; }; certmgr.CertStore = @"C:\Program Files\OpenSC Project\OpenSC\pkcs11\opensc-pkcs11.dll"; certmgr.CertStorePassword = "123456"; //PIN certmgr.ListStoreCertificates(); sftp.SSHCert = new Certificate(CertStoreTypes.cstPKCS11, secKeyBlob, "123456", "*"); sftp.SSHUser = "test"; sftp.SSHLogon("myhost", 22);

99 (cstAuto)The store type is automatically detected from the input data. This setting may be used with both public and private keys and can detect any of the supported formats automatically.

Syntax

def get_ssl_cert_subject() -> str: ...
def set_ssl_cert_subject(value: str) -> None: ...

ssl_cert_subject = property(get_ssl_cert_subject, set_ssl_cert_subject)

Default Value

""

Remarks

This is the subject of the certificate used for client authentication.

This property must be set after all other certificate properties are set. When this property is set, a search is performed in the current certificate store to locate a certificate with a matching subject.

If a matching certificate is found, the property is set to the full subject of the matching certificate.

If an exact match is not found, the store is searched for subjects containing the value of the property.

If a match is still not found, the property is set to an empty string, and no certificate is selected.

The special value "*" picks a random certificate in the certificate store.

The certificate subject is a comma-separated list of distinguished name fields and values. For instance, "CN=www.server.com, OU=test, C=US, E=support@nsoftware.com". Common fields and their meanings are as follows:

FieldMeaning
CNCommon Name. This is commonly a hostname like www.server.com.
OOrganization
OUOrganizational Unit
LLocality
SState
CCountry
EEmail Address

If a field value contains a comma, it must be quoted.

ssl_provider Property

This specifies the SSL/TLS implementation to use.

Syntax

def get_ssl_provider() -> int: ...
def set_ssl_provider(value: int) -> None: ...

ssl_provider = property(get_ssl_provider, set_ssl_provider)

Default Value

0

Remarks

This property specifies the SSL/TLS implementation to use. In most cases the default value of 0 (Automatic) is recommended and should not be changed. When set to 0 (Automatic) the class will select whether to use the platform implementation or the internal implementation depending on the operating system as well as the TLS version being used.

Possible values are:

0 (sslpAutomatic - default)Automatically selects the appropriate implementation.
1 (sslpPlatform) Uses the platform/system implementation.
2 (sslpInternal) Uses the internal implementation.
Additional Notes

In most cases using the default value (Automatic) is recommended. The class will select a provider depending on the current platform.

When Automatic is selected, on Windows the class will use the platform implementation. On Linux/macOS the class will use the internal implementation. When TLS 1.3 is enabled via SSLEnabledProtocols the internal implementation is used on all platforms.

ssl_server_cert_encoded Property

This is the certificate (PEM/Base64 encoded).

Syntax

def get_ssl_server_cert_encoded() -> bytes: ...

ssl_server_cert_encoded = property(get_ssl_server_cert_encoded, None)

Default Value

""

Remarks

This is the certificate (PEM/Base64 encoded). This property is used to assign a specific certificate. The ssl_server_cert_store and ssl_server_cert_subject properties also may be used to specify a certificate.

When ssl_server_cert_encoded is set, a search is initiated in the current ssl_server_cert_store for the private key of the certificate. If the key is found, ssl_server_cert_subject is updated to reflect the full subject of the selected certificate; otherwise, ssl_server_cert_subject is set to an empty string.

This property is read-only.

timeout Property

A timeout for the class.

Syntax

def get_timeout() -> int: ...
def set_timeout(value: int) -> None: ...

timeout = property(get_timeout, set_timeout)

Default Value

60

Remarks

If the timeout property is set to 0, all operations will run uninterrupted until successful completion or an error condition is encountered.

If timeout is set to a positive value, the class will wait for the operation to complete before returning control.

The class will use do_events to enter an efficient wait loop during any potential waiting period, making sure that all system events are processed immediately as they arrive. This ensures that the host application does not "freeze" and remains responsive.

If timeout expires, and the operation is not yet complete, the class fails with an error.

Please note that by default, all timeouts are inactivity timeouts, i.e. the timeout period is extended by timeout seconds when any amount of data is successfully sent or received.

The default value for the timeout property is 60 seconds.

total_customs_value Property

Total customs value for the shipment.

Syntax

def get_total_customs_value() -> str: ...
def set_total_customs_value(value: str) -> None: ...

The TrackingNumber parameter, that identifies the package to be canceled and deleted from the shipping log, is the package_tracking_number assigned to the package by FedEx server when either the get_package_label or the get_shipment_labels method was called.

The following properties can be set prior to calling this method:

To check the status of your cancel request the CancelledShipment config should be inspected.

cancel_shipment Method

Cancels all packages within the shipment.

Syntax

def cancel_shipment(tracking_number: str) -> None: ...

Remarks

Cancels FedEx Express and Ground shipments that have not already been tendered to FedEx.

close_ground_shipments Method

Closes out all FedEx Ground shipments made for the day or generates reports for the last 3 days' close requests.

Syntax

def close_ground_shipments() -> None: ...

Remarks

Closing is a function to be used for FedEx Ground shipments only. Express shipments are automatically closed and do not require you to perform a specific close operation. The Close service allows you to reconcile shipping information for your Ground shipments and print a Ground Manifest for your Ground driver.

At the end of the shipping day, you should perform the FedEx Ground End of Day Close procedure. To do so, call the close_ground_shipments method. The Ground manifest (manifest stored in close_report_file) is generated after a successful close and must be printed before your Ground shipments are tendered to FedEx. This is required to be tendered to FedEx along with your packages if they are being picked up by FedEx Ground. If you are dropping the packages off at a FedEx drop-off location, the manifest is not required.

You may continue to ship Ground packages after a Close has been performed. The Close service may be performed multiple times during your shipping day. Use the Close service to initiate the final stage of processing all shipment data submitted for the day (close of business).

A customer cannot cancel any shipments once they are closed out. However, shipments can be added to a day's shipment after a close operation has been performed and multiple closes can be performed in a day.

When this method is called, the following properties must have been set:

close_report_type specifies the type of report. Only one type of report can be returned per Close request. If you need multiple report types you will have to issue multiple close_ground_shipments requests.

The report will automatically be written to the file specified by close_report_file. These reports can be printed anytime during the shipping day for shipments that have already been closed (up to three days in the past).

config Method

Sets or retrieves a configuration setting.

Syntax

def config(configuration_string: str) -> str: ...

Remarks

config is a generic method available in every class. It is used to set and retrieve configuration settings for the class.

These settings are similar in functionality to properties, but they are rarely used. In order to avoid "polluting" the property namespace of the class, access to these internal properties is provided through the config method.

To set a configuration setting named PROPERTY, you must call Config("PROPERTY=VALUE"), where VALUE is the value of the setting expressed as a string. For boolean values, use the strings "True", "False", "0", "1", "Yes", or "No" (case does not matter).

To read (query) the value of a configuration setting, you must call Config("PROPERTY"). The value will be returned as a string.

get_package_label Method

Generates a shipping label for the specified package.

Syntax

def get_package_label(index: int) -> None: ...

Remarks

When this method is called, the following properties must have been set:

on_error Event

Information about errors during data delivery.

Syntax

class FedExShipIntlErrorEventParams(object):
  @property
  def error_code() -> int: ...

  @property
  def description() -> str: ...

# In class FedExShipIntl:
@property
def on_error() -> Callable[[FedExShipIntlErrorEventParams], None]: ...
@on_error.setter
def on_error(event_hook: Callable[[FedExShipIntlErrorEventParams], None]) -> None: ...

Remarks

CommodityPreferenceCriterion[i]:   Preference Criteria for NAFTA Certificate of Origin documents for the commodity at index i.

This property is required when ShippingDocumentTypes includes the NAFTA flag. Valid indices are from 0 to CommoditiesCount - 1. Valid values and their descriptions are listed from the FedEx documentation:

ValueDescription
0"A": The good is "wholly obtained or produced entirely" in the territory of one or more of the NAFTA countries as referenced in Article 415. Note: The purchase of a good in the territory does not necessarily render it "wholly obtained or produced." If the good is an agricultural good, see also criterion F and Annex 703.2. (Reference: Article 401(a) and 415)
1"B": The good is produced entirely in the territory of one or more of the NAFTA countries and satisfies the specific rule of origin, set out in Annex 401, that applies to its tariff classification. The rule may include a tariff classification change, regional value-content requirement, or a combination there-of. The good must also satisfy all other applicable requirements of Chapter Four. If the good is an agricultural good, see also criterion F and Annex 703.2. (Reference: Article 401(b))
2"C": The good is produced entirely in the territory of one or more of the NAFTA countries exclusively from originating materials. Under this criterion, one or more of the materials may not fall within the definition of "wholly produced or obtained," as set out in Article 415. All materials used in the production of the good must qualify as "originating" by meeting the rules of Article 401(a) through (d). If the good is an agricultural good, see also criterion F and Annex 703.2. Reference: Article 401(c).
3"D": Goods are produced in the territory of one or more of the NAFTA countries but do not meet the applicable rule of origin, set out in Annex 401, because certain non-originating materials do not undergo the required change in tariff classification. The goods do nonetheless meet the regional value-content requirement specified in Article 401 (d). This criterion is limited to the following two circumstances: (1) The good was imported into the territory of a NAFTA country in an unassembled or disassembled form but was classified as an assembled good, pursuant to H.S. General Rule of Interpretation 2(a). or (2). The good incorporated one or more non-originating materials, provided for as parts under the H.S., which could not undergo a change in tariff classification because the heading provided for both the good and its parts and was not further subdivided into subheadings, or the subheading provided for both the good and its parts and was not further subdivided. Note: This criterion does not apply to Chapters 61 through 63 of the H.S. (Reference: Article 401(d))
4"E": Certain automatic data processing goods and their parts, specified in Annex 308.1, that do not originate in the territory are considered originating upon importation into the territory of a NAFTA country from the territory of another NAFTA country when the most-favored-nation tariff rate of the good conforms to the rate established in Annex 308.1 and is common to all NAFTA countries. (Reference: Annex 308.1)
5"F": The good is an originating agricultural good under preference criterion A, B, or C above and is not subject to a quantitative restriction in the importing NAFTA country because it is a "qualifying good" as defined in Annex 703.2, Section A or B (please specify). A good listed in Appendix 703.2B.7 is also exempt from quantitative restrictions and is eligible for NAFTA preferential tariff treatment if it meets the definition of "qualifying good" in Section A of Annex 703.2.
CurrencyCode:   The currency code associated with the monetary values present in the request.

This optional field identifies the preferred currency of the requestor.

CustomerImageCount:   The number of records in the CustomerImage arrays.

This property controls the size of the following arrays:

NOTE: If you are using the CustomerImage configs, you must upload them first on the FedEx portal.

For example, you can choose to use IMAGE_1 as the LETTER_HEAD for the Commercial Invoice, IMAGE_5 as the SIGNATURE for the Commercial Invoice, and IMAGE_1 as the LETTER_HEAD for the Certificate of Origin. In this case, you will need to set the CustomerImageCount to 3. class.Config("CustomerImageCount=3") int index = 0; class.Config("CustomerImageDocumentType(" + index + ")=2") //2=Commercial Invoice class.Config("CustomerImageId(" + index + ")=IMAGE_1") class.Config("CustomerImageType(" + index + ")= LETTER_HEAD") class.Config("CustomerImageProvidedImageType(" + index + ")= LETTER_HEAD") index = 1; class.Config("CustomerImageDocumentType(" + index + ")=2") //2=Commercial Invoice class.Config("CustomerImageId(" + index + ")=IMAGE_5") class.Config("CustomerImageType(" + index + ")=SIGNATURE") class.Config("CustomerImageProvidedImageType(" + index + ")=SIGNATURE") index = 2; class.Config("CustomerImageDocumentType(" + index + ")=1") //1=Certificate of Origine class.Config("CustomerImageId(" + index + ")=IMAGE_1") class.Config("CustomerImageType(" + index + ")=LETTER_HEAD") class.Config("CustomerImageProvidedImageType(" + index + ")=LETTER_HEAD")

CustomerImageDocumentType[i]:   Document type.

Valid values are:

ValueDescription
1 Certificate of Origin
2 Commercial Invoice
The size of the array is controlled by CustomerImageCount.

Used with Freight services only.

DocTabContent:   Custom DocTab content set by the user when preparing a shipping label.

This is applicable to thermal labels with DocTab only.

If provided, thermal labels will include specified doc tab content. If omitted, label will be produced without the doc tab content. This field, if used, should be specified as a JSON.

Documents:   Whether an international shipment contains only documents or no documents.

This is applicable for international shipments only.

If False (default value), this means that this shipment contains NO documents. In this case, the data for commodity items (included in the shipment) have to be provided in the request. The Commercial Invoice is required to associate the shipment (see respective commodity elements defined by the commodities for more details).

If True, it means that this shipment contains ONLY documents. An international shipment can either contain documents only, or no documents. Documents and other commodities cannot be mixed in a shipment.

DryIceCount:   The number of packages which contain dry ice.

This specifies the number of packages in the shipment which contain dry ice. This is used in conjunction with PackageDryIceWeight when DryIce is present (requested) in the shipment_special_services.

EstimateDelivery:   Determines if class will attempt to estimate the Transit Time, Delivery Date, and Delivery Day.

If True (default), the class will attempt to estimate Transit Time, Delivery Date, and/or Delivery Day based on what information came back in the response. This does not account for non-business days, holidays, or weekend delivery and should be treated accordingly.

If False, the class will not estimate Transit Time, Delivery Date, and/or Delivery Day. Instead it will ONLY use the values returned in the response from FedEx. If a property is empty, it means that FedEx did not return this information.

ExportCompliance:   This is an export compliance statement.

General field for exporting-country-specific export data (e.g. B13A for CA, FTSR Exemption or AES Citation for US).

For international shipments requiring an EEI/SED (Electronic Export information/Shipper's Export Declaration), the ExportCompliance should be set to: either a FTR (Foreign Trade Regulations) exemption number or an ITN number (Internal Transaction Number) received from filing your EEI/SED shipment data with AESDirect (go to www.aesdirect.gov to use this application) as proof of filing citation.

For shipments originating in Canada, the following rules apply:

  • if B13AFiling is set to 'NOT_REQUIRED', this field should contain a valid B13A Exemption Number;
  • if B13AFiling is set to 'MANUALLY_ATTACHED', you are not required to enter the 21-character B13A transaction number at the time of shipping;
  • if B13AFiling is set to 'FILED_ELECTRONICALLY', this field should contain a valid 17 or 23 alphanumeric authorization code for your B13A;
  • if B13AFiling is set to 'SUMMARY_REPORTING': this option requires a prior written authorization from Canada Customs;

This number will print on the international shipping label and it is used by customs office. Maximum length: 50.

Two most common exemptions are: 'NO EEI 30.36' (for shipments to Canada) and 'NO EEI 30.37(a)' (for commodity value less than $2,500). However, for the official list of FTR Exemption codes and definitions, please refer to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 15, Part 30, Subpart D (located at http://ecfr.gpoaccess.gov or http://www.census.gov/foreign-trade/regulations).

ShipmentRatingAggregate:   String representing the rating detail on shipment level.

Upon a successful ship request, the shipment rating is returned in the server response only if the payor_type is set to 0 (SENDER). This will be stored as a string in the ShipmentRatingAggregate, formatted as XML. This setting is read-only.

ShippingDocumentFile:   Identifies the location of the document file.

When a document file is received, it will be put at the location specified with the following format:

<ShippingDocumentFile>_<type><sequence number>.pdf

Note that there will not be a sequence number if the file is the only file of its type.

ShippingDocumentTypes:   Specifies which document type to get.

This specifies which documents you would like FedEx to generate and send back to you.

To request one or more documents be generated by FedEx you will need to set of flags as listed below (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to include multiple conditions:

ValueDescription
0x0 None
0x1 Certificate of Origin
0x2 Commercial Invoice
0x4 NAFTA Certificate of Origin

ShipTime:   Local Time of shipment based on shipper's time zone.

This config is used in combination with ship_date property. Together, these identify the date and time the package is tendered to FedEx. This is optional to be entered in the ship request. If not provided, defaults to the current U.S. Central Standard Time. Format: HH:MM:SS using a 24 hour clock (e.g. 11:00 a.m. is 11:00:00, whereas 5:00 p.m. is 17:00:00).

SizeUnit:   The dimension unit.

Declares the type of size units to be used in calculating the size of the shipment and each package contained in it. This is required if package dimensions are passed in the request.

Valid dimension unit of measure codes: IN and CM. Defaults to IN if a value is not passed in the transaction.

SoldToAggregate:   Used to set the party responsible for purchasing the goods shipped from the shipper to the recipient.

Set this to the JSON aggregate for the sold-to party for the shipment. This would be used when the importer is different than the final recipient of the shipment.

The below aggregate shows the possible fields that can be sent. string soldToInfo = @" ""soldTo"": { ""address"": { ""streetLines"": [ ""10 FedEx Parkway"", ""Suite 302"" ], ""city"": ""Beverly Hills"", ""stateOrProvinceCode"": ""CA"", ""postalCode"": ""90210"", ""countryCode"": ""US"", ""residential"": false }, ""contact"": { ""personName"": ""John Taylor"", ""emailAddress"": ""sample@company.com"", ""phoneExtension"": ""91"", ""phoneNumber"": ""1234567890"", ""companyName"": ""Fedex"" }, ""tins"": [ { ""number"": ""123456789"", ""tinType"": ""BUSINESS_NATIONAL"", } ], ""accountNumber"": { ""value"": ""account number"" } }"); ship.Config("SoldToAggregate=" + soldToInfo);

This might be returned by the server even upon successful response. These warnings are usually informational.

WeightUnit:   Weight unit.

This is required when submitting a rate or ship request. It declares the type of weight unit to be used in calculating the weight of the shipment and each package contained in it.

Valid weight types: LB and KG. Defaults to LB if a value is not passed in the transaction. It must be LB for a U.S. Domestic rate quote or ship request.

HTTP Config Settings

AcceptEncoding:   Used to tell the server which types of content encodings the client supports.

When AllowHTTPCompression is True, the class adds an Accept-Encoding header to the request being sent to the server. By default, this header's value is "gzip, deflate". This configuration setting allows you to change the value of the Accept-Encoding header. Note: The class only supports gzip and deflate decompression algorithms.

AllowHTTPCompression:   This property enables HTTP compression for receiving data.

This configuration setting enables HTTP compression for receiving data. When set to True (default), the class will accept compressed data. It then will uncompress the data it has received. The class will handle data compressed by both gzip and deflate compression algorithms.

When True, the class adds an Accept-Encoding header to the outgoing request. The value for this header can be controlled by the AcceptEncoding configuration setting. The default value for this header is "gzip, deflate".

The default value is True.

AllowHTTPFallback:   Whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fallback to HTTP/1.1.

This configuration setting controls whether HTTP/2 connections are permitted to fall back to HTTP/1.1 when the server does not support HTTP/2. This setting is applicable only when http_version is set to "2.0".

If set to True (default), the class will automatically use HTTP/1.1 if the server does not support HTTP/2. If set to False, the class fails with an error if the server does not support HTTP/2.

The default value is True.

Append:   Whether to append data to LocalFile.

This configuration setting determines whether data will be appended when writing to local_file. When set to True, downloaded data will be appended to local_file. This may be used in conjunction with range to resume a failed download. This is applicable only when local_file is set. The default value is False.

Authorization:   The Authorization string to be sent to the server.

If the Authorization property contains a nonempty string, an Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys Authorization information to the server.

This property is provided so that the HTTP class can be extended with other security schemes in addition to the authorization schemes already implemented by the class.

The auth_scheme property defines the authentication scheme used. In the case of HTTP Basic Authentication (default), every time user and password are set, they are Base64 encoded, and the result is put in the authorization property in the form "Basic [encoded-user-password]".

BytesTransferred:   Contains the number of bytes transferred in the response data.

This configuration setting returns the raw number of bytes from the HTTP response data, before the component processes the data, whether it is chunked or compressed. This returns the same value as the on_transfer event, by BytesTransferred.

ChunkSize:   Specifies the chunk size in bytes when using chunked encoding.

This is applicable only when UseChunkedEncoding is True. This setting specifies the chunk size in bytes to be used when posting data. The default value is 16384.

CompressHTTPRequest:   Set to true to compress the body of a PUT or POST request.

If set to True, the body of a PUT or POST request will be compressed into gzip format before sending the request. The "Content-Encoding" header is also added to the outgoing request.

The default value is False.

EncodeURL:   If set to True the URL will be encoded by the class.

If set to True, the URL passed to the class will be URL encoded. The default value is False.

FollowRedirects:   Determines what happens when the server issues a redirect.

This option determines what happens when the server issues a redirect. Normally, the class returns an error if the server responds with an "Object Moved" message. If this property is set to 1 (always), the new url for the object is retrieved automatically every time.

If this property is set to 2 (Same Scheme), the new url is retrieved automatically only if the URL Scheme is the same; otherwise, the class fails with an error.

Note: Following the HTTP specification, unless this option is set to 1 (Always), automatic redirects will be performed only for GET or HEAD requests. Other methods potentially could change the conditions of the initial request and create security vulnerabilities.

Furthermore, if either the new URL server or port are different from the existing one, user and password are also reset to empty, unless this property is set to 1 (Always), in which case the same credentials are used to connect to the new server.

A on_redirect event is fired for every URL the product is redirected to. In the case of automatic redirections, the on_redirect event is a good place to set properties related to the new connection (e.g., new authentication parameters).

The default value is 0 (Never). In this case, redirects are never followed, and the class fails with an error instead.

Following are the valid options:

  • 0 - Never
  • 1 - Always
  • 2 - Same Scheme

GetOn302Redirect:   If set to True the class will perform a GET on the new location.

The default value is False. If set to True, the class will perform a GET on the new location. Otherwise, it will use the same HTTP method again.

HTTP2HeadersWithoutIndexing:   HTTP2 headers that should not update the dynamic header table with incremental indexing.

HTTP/2 servers maintain a dynamic table of headers and values seen over the course of a connection. Typically, these headers are inserted into the table through incremental indexing (also known as HPACK, defined in RFC 7541). To tell the component not to use incremental indexing for certain headers, and thus not update the dynamic table, set this configuration option to a comma-delimited list of the header names.

HTTPVersion:   The version of HTTP used by the class.

This property specifies the HTTP version used by the class. Possible values are as follows:

  • "1.0"
  • "1.1" (default)
  • "2.0"
  • "3.0"

When using HTTP/2 ("2.0"), additional restrictions apply. Please see the following notes for details.

HTTP/2 Notes

When using HTTP/2, a secure Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (TLS/SSL) connection is required. Attempting to use a plaintext URL with HTTP/2 will result in an error.

If the server does not support HTTP/2, the class will automatically use HTTP/1.1 instead. This is done to provide compatibility without the need for any additional settings. To see which version was used, check NegotiatedHTTPVersion after calling a method. The AllowHTTPFallback setting controls whether this behavior is allowed (default) or disallowed.

HTTP/3 Notes

HTTP/3 is supported only in .NET and Java.

When using HTTP/3, a secure (TLS/SSL) connection is required. Attempting to use a plaintext URL with HTTP/3 will result in an error.

IfModifiedSince:   A date determining the maximum age of the desired document.

If this setting contains a nonempty string, an If-Modified-Since HTTP header is added to the request. The value of this header is used to make the HTTP request conditional: if the requested documented has not been modified since the time specified in the field, a copy of the document will not be returned from the server; instead, a 304 (not modified) response will be returned by the server and the component throws an exception

The format of the date value for IfModifiedSince is detailed in the HTTP specs. For example: Sat, 29 Oct 2017 19:43:31 GMT.

KeepAlive:   Determines whether the HTTP connection is closed after completion of the request.

If True, the component will not send the Connection: Close header. The absence of the Connection header indicates to the server that HTTP persistent connections should be used if supported. Note: Not all servers support persistent connections. If False, the connection will be closed immediately after the server response is received.

The default value for KeepAlive is False.

KerberosSPN:   The Service Principal Name for the Kerberos Domain Controller.

If the Service Principal Name on the Kerberos Domain Controller is not the same as the URL that you are authenticating to, the Service Principal Name should be set here.

LogLevel:   The level of detail that is logged.

This configuration setting controls the level of detail that is logged through the on_log event. Possible values are as follows:

0 (None) No events are logged.
1 (Info - default) Informational events are logged.
2 (Verbose) Detailed data are logged.
3 (Debug) Debug data are logged.

The value 1 (Info) logs basic information, including the URL, HTTP version, and status details.

The value 2 (Verbose) logs additional information about the request and response.

The value 3 (Debug) logs the headers and body for both the request and response, as well as additional debug information (if any).

MaxRedirectAttempts:   Limits the number of redirects that are followed in a request.

When follow_redirects is set to any value other than frNever, the class will follow redirects until this maximum number of redirect attempts are made. The default value is 20.

NegotiatedHTTPVersion:   The negotiated HTTP version.

This configuration setting may be queried after the request is complete to indicate the HTTP version used. When http_version is set to "2.0" (if the server does not support "2.0"), then the class will fall back to using "1.1" automatically. This setting will indicate which version was used.

OtherHeaders:   Other headers as determined by the user (optional).

This configuration setting can be set to a string of headers to be appended to the HTTP request headers.

The headers must follow the format "header: value" as described in the HTTP specifications. Header lines should be separated by CRLF ("\r\n") .

Use this configuration setting with caution. If this configuration setting contains invalid headers, HTTP requests may fail.

This configuration setting is useful for extending the functionality of the class beyond what is provided.

ProxyAuthorization:   The authorization string to be sent to the proxy server.

This is similar to the Authorization configuration setting, but is used for proxy authorization. If this configuration setting contains a nonempty string, a Proxy-Authorization HTTP request header is added to the request. This header conveys proxy Authorization information to the server. If proxy_user and proxy_password are specified, this value is calculated using the algorithm specified by proxy_auth_scheme.

ProxyAuthScheme:   The authorization scheme to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPassword:   A password if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyPort:   Port for the proxy server (default 80).

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyServer:   Name or IP address of a proxy server (optional).

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

ProxyUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used for the proxy.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Proxy properties.

SentHeaders:   The full set of headers as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as sent by the client.

StatusCode:   The status code of the last response from the server.

This configuration setting contains the result code of the last response from the server.

StatusLine:   The first line of the last response from the server.

This setting contains the first line of the last response from the server. The format of the line will be [HTTP version] [Result Code] [Description].

TransferredData:   The contents of the last response from the server.

This configuration setting contains the contents of the last response from the server.

TransferredDataLimit:   The maximum number of incoming bytes to be stored by the class.

If TransferredDataLimit is set to 0 (default), no limits are imposed. Otherwise, this reflects the maximum number of incoming bytes that can be stored by the class.

TransferredHeaders:   The full set of headers as received from the server.

This configuration setting returns the complete set of raw headers as received from the server.

TransferredRequest:   The full request as sent by the client.

This configuration setting returns the full request as sent by the client. For performance reasons, the request is not normally saved. Set this configuration setting to ON before making a request to enable it. Following are examples of this request:

.NET Http http = new Http(); http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.PostData = "body"; http.Post("http://someserver.com"); Console.WriteLine(http.Config("TransferredRequest")); C++ HTTP http; http.Config("TransferredRequest=on"); http.SetPostData("body", 5); http.Post("http://someserver.com"); printf("%s\r\n", http.Config("TransferredRequest"));

UseChunkedEncoding:   Enables or Disables HTTP chunked encoding for transfers.

If UseChunkedEncoding is set to True, the class will use HTTP-chunked encoding when posting, if possible. HTTP-chunked encoding allows large files to be sent in chunks instead of all at once. If set to False, the class will not use HTTP-chunked encoding. The default value is False.

Note: Some servers (such as the ASP.NET Development Server) may not support chunked encoding.

UseIDNs:   Whether to encode hostnames to internationalized domain names.

This configuration setting specifies whether hostnames containing non-ASCII characters are encoded to internationalized domain names. When set to True, if a hostname contains non-ASCII characters, it is encoded using Punycode to an IDN (internationalized domain name).

The default value is False and the hostname will always be used exactly as specified. Note: The CodePage setting must be set to a value capable of interpreting the specified host name. For instance, to specify UTF-8, set CodePage to 65001. In the C++ Edition for Windows, the *W version of the class must be used. For instance, DNSW or HTTPW.

UsePlatformHTTPClient:   Whether or not to use the platform HTTP client.

When using this configuration setting, if True, the component will use the default HTTP client for the platform (URLConnection in Java, WebRequest in .NET, or CFHTTPMessage in Mac/iOS) instead of the internal HTTP implementation. This is important for environments in which direct access to sockets is limited or not allowed (e.g., in the Google AppEngine).

Note: This setting is applicable only to Mac/iOS editions.

UseProxyAutoConfigURL:   Whether to use a Proxy auto-config file when attempting a connection.

This configuration specifies whether the class will attempt to use the Proxy auto-config URL when establishing a connection and proxy_auto_detect is set to True.

When True (default), the class will check for the existence of a Proxy auto-config URL, and if found, will determine the appropriate proxy to use.

UserAgent:   Information about the user agent (browser).

This is the value supplied in the HTTP User-Agent header. The default setting is "IPWorks HTTP Component - www.nsoftware.com".

Override the default with the name and version of your software.

TCPClient Config Settings

ConnectionTimeout:   Sets a separate timeout value for establishing a connection.

When set, this configuration setting allows you to specify a different timeout value for establishing a connection. Otherwise, the class will use timeout for establishing a connection and transmitting/receiving data.

FirewallAutoDetect:   Tells the class whether or not to automatically detect and use firewall system settings, if available.

This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallHost:   Name or IP address of firewall (optional).

If a FirewallHost is given, requested connections will be authenticated through the specified firewall when connecting.

If the FirewallHost setting is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the FirewallHost setting is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPassword:   Password to be used if authentication is to be used when connecting through the firewall.

If FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the given firewall. If the authentication fails, the class fails with an error.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallPort:   The TCP port for the FirewallHost;.

The FirewallPort is set automatically when FirewallType is set to a valid value.

Note: This configuration setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallType:   Determines the type of firewall to connect through.

The appropriate values are as follows:

0No firewall (default setting).
1Connect through a tunneling proxy. FirewallPort is set to 80.
2Connect through a SOCKS4 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
3Connect through a SOCKS5 Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.
10Connect through a SOCKS4A Proxy. FirewallPort is set to 1080.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

FirewallUser:   A user name if authentication is to be used connecting through a firewall.

If the FirewallHost is specified, the FirewallUser and FirewallPassword settings are used to connect and authenticate to the Firewall. If the authentication fails, the class fails with an error.

Note: This setting is provided for use by classs that do not directly expose Firewall properties.

KeepAliveInterval:   The retry interval, in milliseconds, to be used when a TCP keep-alive packet is sent and no response is received.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. A TCP keep-alive packet will be sent after a period of inactivity as defined by KeepAliveTime. If no acknowledgment is received from the remote host, the keep-alive packet will be sent again. This configuration setting specifies the interval at which the successive keep-alive packets are sent in milliseconds. This system default if this value is not specified here is 1 second.

Note: This value is not applicable in macOS.

KeepAliveTime:   The inactivity time in milliseconds before a TCP keep-alive packet is sent.

When set, TCPKeepAlive will automatically be set to True. By default, the operating system will determine the time a connection is idle before a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) keep-alive packet is sent. This system default if this value is not specified here is 2 hours. In many cases, a shorter interval is more useful. Set this value to the desired interval in milliseconds.

Linger:   When set to True, connections are terminated gracefully.

This property controls how a connection is closed. The default is True.

In the case that Linger is True (default), two scenarios determine how long the connection will linger. In the first, if LingerTime is 0 (default), the system will attempt to send pending data for a connection until the default IP timeout expires.

In the second scenario, if LingerTime is a positive value, the system will attempt to send pending data until the specified LingerTime is reached. If this attempt fails, then the system will reset the connection.

The default behavior (which is also the default mode for stream sockets) might result in a long delay in closing the connection. Although the class returns control immediately, the system could hold system resources until all pending data are sent (even after your application closes).

Setting this property to False forces an immediate disconnection. If you know that the other side has received all the data you sent (e.g., by a client acknowledgment), setting this property to False might be the appropriate course of action.

LingerTime:   Time in seconds to have the connection linger.

LingerTime is the time, in seconds, the socket connection will linger. This value is 0 by default, which means it will use the default IP timeout.

LocalHost:   The name of the local host through which connections are initiated or accepted.

The local_host setting contains the name of the local host as obtained by the gethostname() system call, or if the user has assigned an IP address, the value of that address.

In multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface) setting LocalHost to the value of an interface will make the class initiate connections (or accept in the case of server classs) only through that interface.

If the class is connected, the local_host setting shows the IP address of the interface through which the connection is made in internet dotted format (aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd). In most cases, this is the address of the local host, except for multi-homed hosts (machines with more than one IP interface).

LocalPort:   The port in the local host where the class binds.

This must be set before a connection is attempted. It instructs the class to bind to a specific port (or communication endpoint) in the local machine.

Setting this to 0 (default) enables the system to choose a port at random. The chosen port will be shown by local_port after the connection is established.

local_port cannot be changed once a connection is made. Any attempt to set this when a connection is active will generate an error.

This; setting is useful when trying to connect to services that require a trusted port in the client side. An example is the remote shell (rsh) service in UNIX systems.

MaxLineLength:   The maximum amount of data to accumulate when no EOL is found.

MaxLineLength is the size of an internal buffer, which holds received data while waiting for an eol string.

If an eol string is found in the input stream before MaxLineLength bytes are received, the on_data_in event is fired with the EOL parameter set to True, and the buffer is reset.

If no eol is found, and MaxLineLength bytes are accumulated in the buffer, the on_data_in event is fired with the EOL parameter set to False, and the buffer is reset.

The minimum value for MaxLineLength is 256 bytes. The default value is 2048 bytes.

MaxTransferRate:   The transfer rate limit in bytes per second.

This configuration setting can be used to throttle outbound TCP traffic. Set this to the number of bytes to be sent per second. By default, this is not set and there is no limit.

ProxyExceptionsList:   A semicolon separated list of hosts and IPs to bypass when using a proxy.

This configuration setting optionally specifies a semicolon-separated list of hostnames or IP addresses to bypass when a proxy is in use. When requests are made to hosts specified in this property, the proxy will not be used. For instance:

www.google.com;www.nsoftware.com

TCPKeepAlive:   Determines whether or not the keep alive socket option is enabled.

If set to True, the socket's keep-alive option is enabled and keep-alive packets will be sent periodically to maintain the connection. Set KeepAliveTime and KeepAliveInterval to configure the timing of the keep-alive packets.

Note: This value is not applicable in Java.

TcpNoDelay:   Whether or not to delay when sending packets.

When true, the socket will send all data that is ready to send at once. When false, the socket will send smaller buffered packets of data at small intervals. This is known as the Nagle algorithm.

By default, this config is set to false.

UseIPv6:   Whether to use IPv6.

When set to 0 (default), the class will use IPv4 exclusively. When set to 1, the class will use IPv6 exclusively. To instruct the class to prefer IPv6 addresses, but use IPv4 if IPv6 is not supported on the system, this setting should be set to 2. The default value is 0. Possible values are:

0 IPv4 Only
1 IPv6 Only
2 IPv6 with IPv4 fallback

SSL Config Settings

LogSSLPackets:   Controls whether SSL packets are logged when using the internal security API.

When ssl_provider is set to Internal, this setting controls whether SSL packets should be logged. By default, this setting is False, as it is only useful for debugging purposes.

When enabled, SSL packet logs are output using the on_ssl_status event, which will fire each time an SSL packet is sent or received.

Enabling this setting has no effect if ssl_provider is set to Platform.

OpenSSLCADir:   The path to a directory containing CA certificates.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The path set by this property should point to a directory containing CA certificates in PEM format. The files each contain one CA certificate. The files are looked up by the CA subject name hash value, which must hence be available. If more than one CA certificate with the same name hash value exist, the extension must be different (e.g. 9d66eef0.0, 9d66eef0.1 etc). OpenSSL recommends to use the c_rehash utility to create the necessary links. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCAFile:   Name of the file containing the list of CA's trusted by your application.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The file set by this property should contain a list of CA certificates in PEM format. The file can contain several CA certificates identified by

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

... (CA certificate in base64 encoding) ...

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

sequences. Before, between, and after the certificates text is allowed which can be used e.g. for descriptions of the certificates. Please refer to the OpenSSL man page SSL_CTX_load_verify_locations(3) for details.

OpenSSLCipherList:   A string that controls the ciphers to be used by SSL.

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

The format of this string is described in the OpenSSL man page ciphers(1) section "CIPHER LIST FORMAT". Please refer to it for details. The default string "DEFAULT" is determined at compile time and is normally equivalent to "ALL:!ADH:RC4+RSA:+SSLv2:@STRENGTH".

OpenSSLPrngSeedData:   The data to seed the pseudo random number generator (PRNG).

This functionality is available only when the provider is OpenSSL.

By default OpenSSL uses the device file "/dev/urandom" to seed the PRNG and setting OpenSSLPrngSeedData is not required. If set, the string specified is used to seed the PRNG.

ReuseSSLSession:   Determines if the SSL session is reused.

If set to true, the class will reuse the context if and only if the following criteria are met:

  • The target host name is the same.
  • The system cache entry has not expired (default timeout is 10 hours).
  • The application process that calls the function is the same.
  • The logon session is the same.
  • The instance of the class is the same.

SSLCACertFilePaths:   The paths to CA certificate files on Unix/Linux.

This setting specifies the paths on disk to CA certificate files on Unix/Linux.

The value is formatted as a list of paths separated by semicolons. The class will check for the existence of each file in the order specified. When a file is found the CA certificates within the file will be loaded and used to determine the validity of server or client certificates.

The default value is:

/etc/ssl/ca-bundle.pem;/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt;/etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt;/etc/pki/tls/cacert.pem

SSLCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL client authentication.

This setting specifies one or more CA certificates to be included in the request when performing SSL client authentication. Some servers require the entire chain, including CA certificates, to be presented when performing SSL client authentication. The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw
...
eWHV5OW1K53o/atv59sOiW5K3crjFhsBOd5Q+cJJnU+SWinPKtANXMht+EDvYY2w
F0I1XhM+pKj7FjDr+XNj
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
\r \n
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEFjCCAv6gAwIBAgIQetu1SMxpnENAnnOz1P+PtTANBgkqhkiG9w0BAQUFADBp
..
d8q23djXZbVYiIfE9ebr4g3152BlVCHZ2GyPdjhIuLeH21VbT/dyEHHA
-----END CERTIFICATE-----

SSLCheckCRL:   Whether to check the Certificate Revocation List for the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the class will check the Certificate Revocation List specified by the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the class will first obtain the list of CRL URLs from the server certificate's CRL distribution points extension. The class will then make HTTP requests to each CRL endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the class fails with an error.

When set to 0 (default) the CRL check will not be performed by the class. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the CRL check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support CRL. When set to 2, it will perform the CRL check and will throw an error if CRL is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCheckOCSP:   Whether to use OCSP to check the status of the server certificate.

This setting specifies whether the class will use OCSP to check the validity of the server certificate. If set to 1 or 2, the class will first obtain the OCSP URL from the server certificate's OCSP extension. The class will then locate the issuing certificate and make an HTTP request to the OCSP endpoint to check the validity of the server's certificate. If the certificate has been revoked or any other issues are found during validation the class fails with an error.

When set to 0 (default) the class will not perform an OCSP check. When set to 1, it will attempt to perform the OCSP check, but will continue without an error if the server's certificate does not support OCSP. When set to 2, it will perform the OCSP check and will throw an error if OCSP is not supported.

This configuration setting is only supported in the Java, C#, and C++ editions. In the C++ edition, it is only supported on Windows operating systems.

SSLCipherStrength:   The minimum cipher strength used for bulk encryption.

This minimum cipher strength largely dependent on the security modules installed on the system. If the cipher strength specified is not supported, an error will be returned when connections are initiated.

Please note that this setting contains the minimum cipher strength requested from the security library. The actual cipher strength used for the connection is shown by the on_ssl_status event.

Use this setting with caution. Requesting a lower cipher strength than necessary could potentially cause serious security vulnerabilities in your application.

When the provider is OpenSSL, SSLCipherStrength is currently not supported. This functionality is instead made available through the OpenSSLCipherList config setting.

SSLEnabledCipherSuites:   The cipher suite to be used in an SSL negotiation.

The enabled cipher suites to be used in SSL negotiation.

By default, the enabled cipher suites will include all available ciphers ("*").

The special value "*" means that the class will pick all of the supported cipher suites. If SSLEnabledCipherSuites is set to any other value, only the specified cipher suites will be considered.

Multiple cipher suites are separated by semicolons.

Example values when ssl_provider is set to Platform: obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=*"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256"); obj.config("SSLEnabledCipherSuites=CALG_AES_256;CALG_3DES"); Possible values when ssl_provider is set to Platform include:

When TLS 1.3 is negotiated (see SSLEnabledProtocols) only the following cipher suites are supported:

  • TLS_AES_256_GCM_SHA384
  • TLS_CHACHA20_POLY1305_SHA256
  • TLS_AES_128_GCM_SHA256

SSLEnabledCipherSuites is used together with SSLCipherStrength.

SSLEnabledProtocols:   Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Used to enable/disable the supported security protocols.

Not all supported protocols are enabled by default (the value of this setting is 4032). If you want more granular control over the enabled protocols, you can set this property to the binary 'OR' of one or more of the following values:

TLS1.312288 (Hex 3000)
TLS1.23072 (Hex C00) (Default)
TLS1.1768 (Hex 300) (Default)
TLS1 192 (Hex C0) (Default)
SSL3 48 (Hex 30) [Platform Only]
SSL2 12 (Hex 0C) [Platform Only]

SSLEnabledProtocols - TLS 1.3 Notes

By default when TLS 1.3 is enabled the class will use the internal TLS implementation when the ssl_provider is set to Automatic for all editions.

In editions which are designed to run on Windows ssl_provider can be set to Platform to use the platform implementation instead of the internal implementation. When configured in this manner, please note that the platform provider is only supported on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up. The default internal provider is available on all platforms and is not restricted to any specific OS version.

If set to 1 (Platform provider) please be aware of the following notes:

  • The platform provider is only available on Windows 11 / Windows Server 2022 and up.
  • SSLEnabledCipherSuites and other similar SSL configuration settings are not supported.
  • If SSLEnabledProtocols includes both TLS 1.3 and TLS 1.2 the above restrictions are still applicable even if TLS 1.2 is negotiated. Enabling TLS 1.3 with the platform provider changes the implementation used for all TLS versions.

SSLEnabledProtocols: SSL2 and SSL3 Notes:

SSL 2.0 and 3.0 are not supported by the class when the ssl_provider is set to internal. To use SSL 2.0 or SSL 3.0, the platform security API must have the protocols enabled and ssl_provider needs to be set to platform.

SSLEnableRenegotiation:   Whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension is supported.

This setting specifies whether the renegotiation_info SSL extension will be used in the request when using the internal security API. This setting is True by default, but can be set to False to disable the extension.

This setting is only applicable when ssl_provider is set to Internal.

SSLIncludeCertChain:   Whether the entire certificate chain is included in the SSLServerAuthentication event.

This setting specifies whether the Encoded parameter of the on_ssl_server_authentication event contains the full certificate chain. By default this value is False and only the leaf certificate will be present in the Encoded parameter of the on_ssl_server_authentication event.

If set to True all certificates returned by the server will be present in the Encoded parameter of the on_ssl_server_authentication event. This includes the leaf certificate, any intermediate certificate, and the root certificate.

SSLKeyLogFile:   The location of a file where per-session secrets are written for debugging purposes.

This setting optionally specifies the full path to a file on disk where per-session secrets are stored for debugging purposes.

When set, the class will save the session secrets in the same format as the SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable functionality used by most major browsers and tools such as Chrome, Firefox, and cURL. This file can then be used in tools such as Wireshark to decrypt TLS traffice for debugging purposes. When writing to this file the class will only append, it will not overwrite previous values.

Note: This setting is only applicable when ssl_provider is set to Internal.

SSLNegotiatedCipher:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite.

Returns the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipher[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite strength.

Returns the strength of the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g.TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite:   Returns the negotiated cipher suite.

Returns the cipher suite negotiated during the SSL handshake represented as a single string.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedCipherSuite[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm.

Returns the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchange[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength:   Returns the negotiated key exchange algorithm strength.

Returns the strenghth of the key exchange algorithm negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedKeyExchangeStrength[connId]");

SSLNegotiatedVersion:   Returns the negotiated protocol version.

Returns the protocol version negotiated during the SSL handshake.

Note: For server components (e.g. TCPServer) this is a per-connection setting accessed by passing the ConnectionId. For example: server.Config("SSLNegotiatedVersion[connId]");

SSLSecurityFlags:   Flags that control certificate verification.

The following flags are defined (specified in hexadecimal notation). They can be or-ed together to exclude multiple conditions:

0x00000001Ignore time validity status of certificate.
0x00000002Ignore time validity status of CTL.
0x00000004Ignore non-nested certificate times.
0x00000010Allow unknown Certificate Authority.
0x00000020Ignore wrong certificate usage.
0x00000100Ignore unknown certificate revocation status.
0x00000200Ignore unknown CTL signer revocation status.
0x00000400Ignore unknown Certificate Authority revocation status.
0x00000800Ignore unknown Root revocation status.
0x00008000Allow test Root certificate.
0x00004000Trust test Root certificate.
0x80000000Ignore non-matching CN (certificate CN not-matching server name).

This functionality is currently not available when the provider is OpenSSL.

SSLServerCACerts:   A newline separated list of CA certificate to use during SSL server certificate validation.

This setting optionally specifies one or more CA certificates to be used when verifying the server certificate. When verifying the server's certificate the certificates trusted by the system will be used as part of the verification process. If the server's CA certificates are not installed to the trusted system store, they may be specified here so they are included when performing the verification process. This setting should only be set if the server's CA certificates are not already trusted on the system and cannot be installed to the trusted system store.

The value of this setting is a newline (CrLf) separated list of certificates. For instance:

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
MIIEKzCCAxOgAwIBAgIRANTET4LIkxdH6P+CFIiHvTowDQYJKoZIhvcNAQELBQAw

-----END CERTIFICATE-----

TLS12SignatureAlgorithms:   Defines the allowed TLS 1.2 signature algorithms when SSLProvider is set to Internal.

This setting specifies the allowed server certificate signature algorithms when ssl_provider is set to Internal and SSLEnabledProtocols is set to allow TLS 1.2.

When specified the class will verify that the server certificate signature algorithm is among the values specified in this setting. If the server certificate signature algorithm is unsupported the class fails with an error.

The format of this value is a comma separated list of hash-signature combinations. For instance: component.SSLProvider = TCPClientSSLProviders.sslpInternal; component.Config("SSLEnabledProtocols=3072"); //TLS 1.2 component.Config("TLS12SignatureAlgorithms=sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa"); The default value for this setting is sha512-ecdsa,sha512-rsa,sha512-dsa,sha384-ecdsa,sha384-rsa,sha384-dsa,sha256-ecdsa,sha256-rsa,sha256-dsa,sha224-ecdsa,sha224-rsa,sha224-dsa,sha1-ecdsa,sha1-rsa,sha1-dsa.

In order to not restrict the server's certificate signature algorithm, specify an empty string as the value for this setting, which will cause the signature_algorithms TLS 1.2 extension to not be sent.

TLS12SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for ECC.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.2 for ECC.

The default value is ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1.

When using TLS 1.2 and ssl_provider is set to Internal, the values refer to the supported groups for ECC. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)

TLS13KeyShareGroups:   The groups for which to pregenerate key shares.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. The groups specified here will have key share data pregenerated locally before establishing a connection. This can prevent an additional round trip during the handshake if the group is supported by the server.

The default value is set to balance common supported groups and the computational resources required to generate key shares. As a result only some groups are included by default in this setting.

Note: All supported groups can always be used during the handshake even if not listed here, but if a group is used which is not present in this list it will incur an additional round trip and time to generate the key share for that group.

In most cases this setting does not need to be modified. This should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072

The values are ordered from most preferred to least preferred. The following values are supported:

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448"
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1"
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096"
  • "ffdhe_6144"
  • "ffdhe_8192"

TLS13SignatureAlgorithms:   The allowed certificate signature algorithms.

This setting holds a comma separated list of allowed signature algorithms. Possible values are:

  • "ed25519" (default)
  • "ed448" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384" (default)
  • "ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pkcs1_sha512" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha256" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha384" (default)
  • "rsa_pss_sha512" (default)
The default value is rsa_pss_sha256,rsa_pss_sha384,rsa_pss_sha512,rsa_pkcs1_sha256,rsa_pkcs1_sha384,rsa_pkcs1_sha512,ecdsa_secp256r1_sha256,ecdsa_secp384r1_sha384,ecdsa_secp521r1_sha512,ed25519,ed448. This setting is only applicable when SSLEnabledProtocols includes TLS 1.3.
TLS13SupportedGroups:   The supported groups for (EC)DHE key exchange.

This setting specifies a comma separated list of named groups used in TLS 1.3 for key exchange. This setting should only be modified if there is a specific reason to do so.

The default value is ecdhe_x25519,ecdhe_x448,ecdhe_secp256r1,ecdhe_secp384r1,ecdhe_secp521r1,ffdhe_2048,ffdhe_3072,ffdhe_4096,ffdhe_6144,ffdhe_8192

  • "ecdhe_x25519" (default)
  • "ecdhe_x448" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp256r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp384r1" (default)
  • "ecdhe_secp521r1" (default)
  • "ffdhe_2048" (default)
  • "ffdhe_3072" (default)
  • "ffdhe_4096" (default)
  • "ffdhe_6144" (default)
  • "ffdhe_8192" (default)

Socket Config Settings

AbsoluteTimeout:   Determines whether timeouts are inactivity timeouts or absolute timeouts.

If AbsoluteTimeout is set to True, any method which does not complete within Timeout seconds will be aborted. By default, AbsoluteTimeout is False, and the timeout is an inactivity timeout.

Note: This option is not valid for UDP ports.

FirewallData:   Used to send extra data to the firewall.

When the firewall is a tunneling proxy, use this property to send custom (additional) headers to the firewall (e.g. headers for custom authentication schemes).

InBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the incoming queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be receiving. Increasing the value of the InBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the InBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.

OutBufferSize:   The size in bytes of the outgoing queue of the socket.

This is the size of an internal queue in the TCP/IP stack. You can increase or decrease its size depending on the amount of data that you will be sending. Increasing the value of the OutBufferSize setting can provide significant improvements in performance in some cases.

Some TCP/IP implementations do not support variable buffer sizes. If that is the case, when the class is activated the OutBufferSize reverts to its defined size. The same happens if you attempt to make it too large or too small.
