Calling webservices from ABAP via https/ssl with p12 certificates.

Hi all,

I have a problem with calling an external webservice via HTTPS.

I configured my system as indicate in the blog /people/jens.gleichmann/blog/2008/10/31/calling-webservices-from-abap-via-httpsssl-with-pfx-certificates but when I check the RFC connection the result is: ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR.

I check the ICM monitor and this is the result:
