404 Accessing REST authetication page.

New Member

Attempting to perform a basic log in using the services authentication page but I keep receiving a 404 response. I've used custom code and a slightly modified version of the basic python code provided on Splunk's page both to no avail. Here's the basic code.

import urllib
import httplib2
from xml.dom import minidom

baseurl = 'http://127.0.0.1:8000'
username = 'admin'
password = 'password'

serverContent = httplib2.Http().request(baseurl + '/services/auth/login',
'POST', headers={}, body=urllib.urlencode({'username':username, 'password':password}))[1]

print serverContent

The base url for the REST endpoint should probably be https://localhost:8089.

You're right but I don't have ssl enabled on my test machine. Now I can connect but I am left with a completely separate SSL error. Meh.
