When loading a WMS, which is using HTTPS protocol, HTTP requests are sent out only.
You can see the requests in "Log Messages" or using a proxy server: it's HTTP only (and fails, if the server doesn't redirect to HTTPS).

This bug appears at least in build d48818b492.

Addition: of course, you can see the errors in "Log Messages" only. Better use a proxy.

Argh, seems like the admin has setup WMS service the wrong way. GetCapabilities shows:

<OnlineResource xlink:href="http://..."

Override works.

  • Status changed from Open to Closed

Closed, since foreign WMS server is set up the wrong way.
