ESP8266 SSL cause the board disconnected

I’d like to know if there is anything I can do to fix this. I have exactly the same code. The only difference was changing the include file from BlynkSimpleEsp8266.h to BlynkSimpleEsp8266_SSL.h then the board become unusable at all: The Blynk app kept showing the board is disconnected every 10~20 seconds or so.
I was just using the ESP8266_Standalone_SSL sample, with the only modification to use my auth token and WiFi SSID/password.

SSL is still in beta in ESP8266 support package…

Thanks for your reply.
I’d like to see some level of support to it in Blynk since it kinda works for lot of REST APIs which require secure connection. But if it doesn’t work on Blynk means we can not use those REST APIs for Blynk applications.

I’m not sure I understood you correctly. What is the limitation you are describing?

If we can’t use SSL on ESP8266 application, means we are not able to use ESP8266 to connect to external REST APIs like Google calendar directly. This sounds like a huge limitation on what we can do with the ESP8266 board.

It will work in some cases - and still, this is not a problem of Blynk itself :wink:
