SSL issue with feeds from Oxford University Press #1235
I want to subscribe to some RSS feeds of academic journals that are published by Oxford University Press. However, none of them work with Vienna (since at least version 3.5.*, cannot remember from before that), but I can access them through Google Chrome or curl. For example, here is the feed for the Journal of Consumer Research: https://academic.oup.com/rss/site_5397/3258.xml. The activity monitor outputs the following error:
On cocoaforge (https://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=27120), it was suggested that it might be an SSL problem:
This site seems to be picky on User-Agent. Connection is reset, either on http or https, if I use curl and let it send its default user agent.
Everything works as expected if I use curl and spoof a Mozilla Firefox user agent or a Safari user agent.
(which is very similar to the default one by NSURLSession, cf. commit b2e9b45) aborts, while
(without the part about CFNetwork) works fine…
