I'm running an ubuntu docker container on a MacOS host.

I have the oracle-pab server running in a nix-shell, but when I try to run the oracle-client executable, I get this error:

[nix-shell:/src/plutus-pioneer-program/code/week06]# cabal run oracle-client

  requestHeaders       = []

  requestVersion       = HTTP/1.1
 (StatusCodeException (Response {responseStatus = Status {statusCode = 403, statusMessage = "Forbidden"},

 responseClose' = ResponseClose}) "error code: 1020"))

however, if I run curl from the same command line, it works. However, curl requires the -L option to follow redirects, otherwise it just returns html for Permanently Moved.

 curl -i -L 'https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/cardano'

Why does the haskell client get a 403 code from the target server, where the same request from curl does not?

Update: I just noticed that the haskell library is sending the request under version HTTP/1.1, whereas curl sends the request with HTTP/2. Is it possible this is the difference?

And if so, is it possible to get the Haskell version updated to HTTP/2?

  • It can't be that coinmarketcap just moved the cardano page, but there some difference between how curl sends the request and how the haskell library sends the request.
