    Solved HTTPS/SSL Banner Error

    So I've noticed this for a while now and i can't seem to get it to work. My banner for my teamspeak server is uploaded on my site and from there i just grab the link and put it on my teamspeak server. Now here is the problem: EVERYTIME I include an https:// instead of a http:// URL it gives me an error and doesn't save the configuration. Now the problem is that i'm running Mod Rewrite that basically redirects all http traffic. Given the link to my Banner, every time i post the url in. It gives me an error, if i remove the s from https and just leave it at http. The image doesn't show up. And yes i've checked all the permissions in my folders to make sure nothing is blocking it.


    Any help?

    If you are in control of the webserver config I would just create a virtual host, point a subdomain to the virtual host and use that for the banner images.

    I mean i could just as well upload the image to a site like imgur........ thats not really the point. The point is why isn't a https address working?

    It's not working because it's apparently not supported.

    Maybe support for this could be added?
    I'd hope they didn't reinvent the wheel and used an already existing HTTP library that probably also supports HTTPS.
    Could fail silently if one of the several ways an HTTPS connection can fail occurs.
    Admin could just check in a browser, then, to see what the problem is. (I.E. "Your banner image doesn't work and it's an HTTPS link? Check in your favourite browser!")

    Yeah, but why do you transfer a "banner" with https?! It can't be that important or secrect because you want to display it within your teamspeak. The simple http-transfer should be more then enough, shouldn't it?

    Or please enlighten me why a banner needs such harsh transport protection.

    Because all requests to a domain might be automatically redirected to HTTPS to make sure no resources are accidentally requested over HTTP?
    Are you seriously suggesting creating a separate HTTP-only access path (i.e. a subdomain or subdirectory) for one image, just because someone (probably) created an over-zealous syntax check?

    It's 2013 and using HTTPS for everything should be possible, if not the default. TS authors sadly have a track record of re-inventing the wheel or stubbornly insisting on doing things their own way instead of in a "best practices" way. I'd not be surprised at all if TS3 uses some kind of homebrew HTTP client that simply can't do TLS.

    Also, you don't get to decide what's "important enough" or "secret".
    Maybe some day someone will think it's funny to put an image (or another file, who knows what TS3 will do if the banner file is not actually an image) as the banner that would be illegal to download in your jurisdiction. You connect to their server. That's now on record, since we know all traffic is being captured and analyzed.
    If push came to shove, there'd now be proof that you accessed illegal content.

    The first part of that scenario is realistic enough, the second is a bit further fetched, but still not untrue or impossible.

    Regardless. If they're using a library that does HTTP for them, there's good chances it can do HTTPS, too. And there's no good reason not to make it available.

    I'm having the same problem. Is the TeamSpeak team planning to address this issue?

    It's not anything prioritary for me, but what i'm not going to do is have another subdomain just to host a banner image. It is much simpler for me to serve everything from https so i don't have to think what must be secured and what not

    HTTPS/SSL is not supported from us. This currently no error or bug.

    Our team decided not to add this feature for upcomming clients.
    We need the SSQ libary for QT and they take much space in our installers.

    That's just wrong... The current 32-bit installer for Windows is about 28 megs... Compiling Qt with OpenSSL support and adding the required SSL libs would need less than 2 megs... Not much of a difference.

    If what Philosound wrote in this thread is true, there's just no reason (except laziness) not to include SSL support:

    http://forum.teamspeak.com/showthread.php/93728

    Dynamically loading the libs when OpenSSL is installed on the system is the perfect solution imo.

    Okay, it might be annoying, but most web hosts that deliver pictures are able to ignore extra info... so just try to enter the above URL as "https://lut.im/7Mj6gZDH/nnJQD1tU.png" into teamspeak. So teamspeak has nothing to complain and as far as I checked with curl the web host accepts this redundant information and delivers the picture nevertheless.

    Server 3.0.11 will add the support HTTPS for Server banners.

    ///Edit///
    https://lut.im/7Mj6gZDH/nnJQD1tU works too with 3.0.11.
