We have been been communicating with Twitter from our iSeries. Recently Twitter increased their security and now required a digital certificate. We followed all the setup instructions but get this error on the green screen.

 gsk_secure_soc_init() failed with rc = 6000 and errno = 0. 8 rc of 6000 means Certificate is not signed by a trusted certificate authority.

The certificat we created is linked to the local certificate authority delivered with our iSeries.

What is required to establish the trusted certificate authority?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Finally got an answer. IBM ran a trace that determined we needed a specific Certificate Authority, which they sent. It was a 1K text file, which we imported into the IBM i using Digital Certificate Manager.

Once the certificate authority was installed the software started working right away.

    Recently Twitter increased their security and now required a digital certificate. Can you link us to the Twitter documentation on this, please? Are they requesting a client-side certificate? Tom
