Using the evaluation version I was trying to use the how-to for obtaining ocsp information. What appears to be the ocsp extension info shows an AccessMethod OID of instead of The AccessLocation seems to point to the ocsp responder http://<ip>/ocsp.

Thank you for contacting us.

"43 06 01 05 05 07 48" is an ASN.1-encoded form of the object identifier. Use SBUtils.Unit.OIDToStr() method to convert the encoded OID to the textual form.

I have a silly question:
SBB has several classes for OCSP and Timestamp including:
- TELFileOcspClient - TELHTTPOcspClient
I don't know the use cases of these classes. For example, we have a tsp service, 3161 compilant and it works for Acrobat. our tsp service is deployed in ISS throgh the port 318. I cann't use TELHTTPTspClient with our tsp service and we have to use TELFILETSPClient.
We also have a ocsp service in port 8001 and wonder which kind of OCSPClient we should use.
We are developing a service to accept any tsp/ocsp service, so i wonder if there is a way to check when we sould use TELFileTspClient (TelFileOcspClient) instead of TELHttpTspClient (TelhttpOcspClient).

TSP and OCSP are two completely different things. They have *nothing* in common. So you should not treat them as "tsp/ocsp service".

ElFile*Client components let you use your own transport (be it HTTP client or other transport), while ElHTTP*Client provide a link to ElHTTPSClient class. That's the main difference between those two pairs of classes.
