  1. Some editors and such can add a BOM to the begining of files, which can screw things up. There's another thread where that happened to a certificate file.
  2. Hi, about this thead, https://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/412455-icloud-email-servers-rejecting-emails/ where did you find the icloudadmin contact? I'm facing similar issue. Thanks in advance.

      I found them through the link I posted that was returned in my email from them.  Your's might be different.  Check and see, but here's the one I got.  Please visit https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204137

      After a couple weeks, I never had the problem again.  There were some threads I found searcing google, but it's been a while.

    Paypal App - Fee

    This came up in the 1980's mainly with gas stations as I remember. In the end, it was ruled they could discount cash sales, but not surcharge in any way someone using a credit card. I beleive there is a law in the US about it. Maybe the FTC did it.
  4. When I use the test server, I use it in live mode. It acts like the normal secure2 server, but in the sandbox. I get a confirmation email and daily report just like secure sever. Someone said they had a problem with ssl also. The secure sever is supposed be https://secure2.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll It has a 2 after secure and there are 3 instances. A.net switched to the Akamai routing network a few years ago and the link was changed. I don't know if they will keep the old active as they bounced back and forth on that.
  5. You can go search through the A.net info, but here's a piece of their info on md5. " Note that the MD5 Hash option exists for transaction responses sent by means of the Advanced Integration Method (AIM) or the Card Present (CP) implementation methods. However, these methods use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) to ensure that the transaction response is legitimate, and so it is not as useful for AIM or CP merchants. " That comes from this link, but you can find several on their developer site. https://support.authorize.net/s/article/What-is-the-MD5-Hash-Security-feature-and-how-does-it-work
  6. You can get the current cert at this link. https://github.com/AuthorizeNet/sdk-php/blob/master/lib/ssl/cert.pem I think all we have to do is remove the MD5 code. Aim never needed this in the first place. Of course, someone could contact A.net to verify. On my test account, I have removed the code and it works fine. I never used MD5.

  8. On my test site using my AIM module on their test server/sandbox it works with all the MD5 code commented out of the aim module. I never had anything entered for it and all the md5 code was contingent on something being entered. I think the md5 code was carry over from when Harald did the SIM module, but I'm guessing. I also downloaded their SDK for the api and have played with that a little on my test site with Netbeans. Netbeans is helpful because it parses the code and can take you right to a class or method without having to hunt for it. Since they have about 500 files in this api, NB is really helpful. I used their sample code to get it to work from my test site. I think we could reuse a lot of the aim module code and convert it to use the api.
  9. People might want to read this post below on the a.net support forum. From what i remembed the md5 is only needed for SIm. I've been searching through all the developer info and working on the forums. It's been a long time since I poked around here. Check this link https://support.authorize.net/s/article/Do-I-need-to-upgrade-my-transaction-fingerprint-from-HMAC-MD5-to-HMAC-SHA512-and-how
  10. Hey Peter, CIM is listed as End of Life on the upgrade guide. https://developer.authorize.net/api/upgrade_guide/
  11. I won't be able to deep dive into this right now, but the AIM method is now deprecated. There's an upgrade guide. https://developer.authorize.net/api/upgrade_guide/
  12. I didn't receive anything from A.net on this. A quick read on those links talks about it for SIM and DPm. I've always left the md5 blank but I noticed it does get a return in the debug emails. I've thought in the past that the md5 was for SIM and DPM. We'll have to look into this more.

    New UPS XML Shipping Module available

    Hey Pete, I don't have the answer for this module, but look into using Google's Address Autocomplete. Burt was working on module for this and It he has it available. It solves 99% of the address problems.
  14. I don't know if anyone will have interest in this, so I won't spend a lot of time on this unless it gains traction. Anyway, I use batch print from over a decade ago and didn't realize until yesterday that the pdf class was still being maintained. Since I only sell in the US, I haven't run into many character encoding problems, but I imagine some of you do. So, the new version of Cezpdf seems to work with all the characters. It's also php 7.2 compliant. Even better, I was able to replace my old Cezpdf and Cpdf class files and associated files. With very little changes, it prints my invoice. The pdf manual seems pretty useful, but I haven't gone very far into it yet. The main snag I hit was using "addTextWrap", which requires a different order than before. But, it has more functionality, so I can right justify for totals, which I couldn't do before. addText also has changed. I only have a few hours into it, but check the manual out. So, I said wouldn't ramble too much. If anyone is intersted you can find it at https://github.com/rospdf/pdf-php

    HoneyPot Captcha

    There was a thread on this in the Cpanel forums and some of the ips will blur like that but you won't likely have any that show Russia or Ukraine that are CA or US.
