When I run NiFI 1.8 on my local machine (http://localhost:8080/nifi) I am able to interact with the application through the API using Java. I can start and stop processors, and I get a 200 response code everytime.
When I use the same code to interact with a remote NiFI instance (which uses authentication) I get a SocketException, with the message "Unexpected end of file from server"
I tried setting credentials of the HttpURLConnection but it made no difference. Is this an issue with a certificate? If it is I'm not sure how to obtain and set the correct one.
