Can I get an HTTPS version of the IDX link?

  1. RETS URL:
  2. Account name: spooner

Or is there an IDX page I can link to? I'm trying to incorporate an MLS search into a website.

Also, is the RETS URL I provided above the same thing as an IDX link?

This is all I could find online, but it doesn't quite answer my question or help with the specific RETS Url I've received.

Here is the secure version of the RETS URL:
RETS is not IDX, it is a common Real Estate data transfer specificiation.
You should use the newer RETS-Version: RETS/1.7.2 or RETS/1.8 because 1.5 will hopefully go away someday.

Thank you so much for your response. What is this webpage supposed to look like when I click the RETS URL? All I see is code after I log in. Wix allows me to display an external website in a window on my site, but when I paste the RETS URL you provided, the viewer is asked to log in (even after I've logged in).

RETS does not return a web page. It is similar to a web service and is called by a RETS Client of some sort. It was not intended to be used directly in a web site. Example clients are RETS Connector, PHRETS, LIBRETS, etc.
