Calling a Web Service isn't too difficult and with the SolarEdge documentation and Postman I was about to talk to the system right away. Really easy API Key based system. I would feed the same API calls into the Pi Pico W and it would scream about security. I had to go with a .setInsecure() command on the client to get any response.

When it did respond, out of the entire JSON datagram all I got was the first "{" and it would hang. Very frustrating.
