Great Plains Regional MLS: Data Vendor Update - URL for RETS Access

Feed Information: Classic RETS URL: Account Name: 967124

Hi @bwolven

The URL we are using is slightly different: The difference between the two is we have a dot between oabrmls and rets and you have a dash. Also, we are using http and not https We tried both the dash and dot and both worked, but when we updated the protocol to https, its not working for us. When we send this query:

we get back an HTTP status code of 401 with an "unauthorized" response from the server. We have tried removing theUser-Agents=RedfinRetsClient/1.0, and tried both digest and non-digest authentication, and no combination of these is working with the https protocol. https didnt work with basic or digest.

Having the DASH makes a difference when using HTTPS,
I would advise always using the dash
The other requirement for HTTPS is that you use Basic authentication.
HTTP requires Digest.

@bwolven Yes, however when we tried that, with https, Basic authentication and the dash, it didn't work, we got a 401 Unauthorized error.

This is the exact query we are sending:

And this is the trimmed response:

2022-05-20 08:39:35,368 pool-12-thread-1 WARN HTTP status code does not indicate success: 401; response content (first 256 chars): <html xmlns=""> <head>
