(Excel) SSL Server Example

Demonstrates how to create an SSL socket for accepting connections. This example is *very* simple in that it will create an SSL socket for accepting a single connection. It will read a message from the client, send a reply, and exit.

' This example requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
' See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

Dim listenSslSocket As Chilkat.Socket
Set listenSslSocket = Chilkat.NewSocket

' An SSL server needs a digital certificate.  This example loads it from a PFX file.

' Create an instance of a certificate store object, load a PFX file,
' locate the certificate we need, and use it.
' (a PFX file may contain more than one certificate.)
Dim certStore As Chilkat.CertStore
Set certStore = Chilkat.NewCertStore
' The 1st argument is the filename, the 2nd arg is the 
' PFX file's password:

success = certStore.LoadPfxFile("chilkat.pfx","test")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.Print certStore.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

' Find the certificate to be used for SSL:

Set cert = certStore.FindCertBySubject("Chilkat Software, Inc.")
If (certStore.LastMethodSuccess = False) Then
    Debug.Print certStore.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

' Use the certificate:
success = listenSslSocket.InitSslServer(cert)
If (success <> True) Then

    Debug.Print listenSslSocket.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

' Bind and listen on a port:

myPort = 8123
' Allow for a max of 5 queued connect requests.

backLog = 5
success = listenSslSocket.BindAndListen(myPort,backLog)
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.Print listenSslSocket.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

' If accepting an SSL/TLS connection, the SSL handshake is part of the connection
' establishment process. This involves a few back-and-forth messages between the 
' client and server to establish algorithms and a shared key to create the secure 
' channel. The sending and receiving of these messages are governed by the 
' MaxReadIdleMs and MaxSendIdleMs properties. If these properties are set to 0 
' (and this is the default unless changed by your application), then the 
' AcceptNextConnection can hang indefinitely during the SSL handshake process. 
' Make sure these properties are set to appropriate values before calling AcceptNextConnection.

' Set a 10 second max for waiting to read/write.  This is for the SSL/TLS handshake establishment.
listenSslSocket.MaxReadIdleMs = 10000
listenSslSocket.MaxSendIdleMs = 10000

' Accept a single client connection and establish the secure SSL/TLS channel:


maxWaitMillisec = 20000
Set clientSock = listenSslSocket.AcceptNextConnection(maxWaitMillisec)
If (listenSslSocket.LastMethodSuccess = False) Then
    Debug.Print listenSslSocket.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

' The client (in this example) is going to send a "Hello Server! -EOM-" 
' message.  Read it:

receivedMsg = clientSock.ReceiveUntilMatch("-EOM-")
If (clientSock.LastMethodSuccess <> True) Then
    Debug.Print clientSock.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

Debug.Print receivedMsg

' Send a "Hello Client! -EOM-" message:
success = clientSock.SendString("Hello Client! -EOM-")
If (success <> True) Then
    Debug.Print clientSock.LastErrorText
    Exit Sub
End If

' Close the connection with the client
' Wait a max of 20 seconds (20000 millsec)
success = clientSock.Close(20000)
