Call Ultimaker's HTTP API from an HTTPS site

Posted · Call Ultimaker's HTTP API from an HTTPS site


I'm trying to call the ultimaker's API from an https site (google site) while being on the same network as the printer.

I get the "mixed content" error that stops me from doing so. (you're not supposed call a resource from an HTTPS to a HTTP because it is a security hasard.)

I've not seen much people asking the same question around, so I ask myself, am I dumb and there is an easy workaround, or it's just not possible.

Thank you for your answers !

    Well apache has proxy features. So if you already had a website where you own the primary web server, and it's apache, you can easily add a few lines into the apache config file such that for example:


    would proxy translate to your um3 as http requests.

    But if you don't already have an apache webserver already being used then this is more complicated.
