Thanks for a reply :).I'm stuck at one point.We host our Rest WEB API on server where certicates are installed with same name as Domain of Our API.Now,with transport security in webconfig and other settings my API host on https with help of SSL Certificate and my web API access from outer world application through https;//XXXXXXX.Here the main problem I am facing,when from outer world application access my web API through https:/XXXXXXX they faced a SSL connection error.Is necessary for them to install a same certificate on their side also to make web API call successfull through Https:/XXXXXXX
NOTE:I'm using self signed certificate.Guess same problem I will face when I purchase a SSL certificate too and wihtout SSL settings with simple http://XXXXX request all going good.
Thanks in advance :)
