APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
The integrated web services client for ILE does not support
using SSL when connecting to a proxy server.

CORRECTION FOR APAR SE66545 :
-----------------------------
The client transport support has been enhanced to support SSL
when connecting to a proxy server. The support includes:

(1) The ability to use a secure channel (SSL) when connecting to
a proxy server. In order to indicate that SSL is to be used when
connecting to the proxy server, a call to the API
axiscStubSetProxySSL must be made:

RPG: axiscStubSetProxySSL(WsStub.handle: 1);

C:   axiscStubSetProxySSL(handle, 1);


(2) The ability to perform SSL tunneling when connecting to a
proxy server over an unsecure channel.  In SSL tunneling,
encrypted data is passed through the proxy server unaltered.
This will happen automatically if the web service endpoint uses
the 'https' protocol.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR SE66545 :
--------------------------------
None.
