Re: help using Curl through Vagrant

I tried this using the old command prompt, and I got the following result:

C:\>"c:\HashiCorp\Vagrant\embedded\bin\curl.exe" -v --cacert "c:\HashiCorp\Vagra
nt\embedded\cacert.pem" ""
* Trying
* Connected to ( port 443 (#0)
* Cipher selection: ALL:!EXPORT:!EXPORT40:!EXPORT56:!aNULL:!LOW:!RC4:@STRENGTH

* TLSv1.0 (OUT), TLS alert, Server hello (2):
* SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
* Closing connection 0
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
More details here:

curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle"
 of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default
 bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file
 using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
 the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
 problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
 not match the domain name in the URL).
If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use
 the -k (or --insecure) option.

Is this the real Curl? And what do I do now?

I couldn't get it to work exactly as you specified, but I managed to figure out the following commands:

            PS C:\HashiCorp\Vagrant\embedded\bin> curl -Verbose
            cmdlet Invoke-WebRequest at command pipeline position 1
            Supply values for the following parameters:
            VERBOSE: GET with 0-byte payload
            VERBOSE: received -1-byte response of content type text/html; charset=utf-8
    I've never seen curl output like that before. I don't like it. Microsoft has added curl and wget as aliases for Invoke-WebRequest in Powershell 5 (unclear about 4). They already used iwr as an alias, that should have been enough. Somehow I missed the news on this. [1]
    So what you're seeing isn't curl output. Powershell isn't really running curl, it's running it's own web requester. You should be able to run the real curl in Powershell if it's in the current directory by prefixing it with .\ like this:
    .\curl -V
    If you want to run it in Powershell using the path use & to execute it like this:
    & "C:\HashiCorp\Vagrant\embedded\bin\curl.exe" -v --cacert "C:\HashiCorp\Vagrant\embedded\cacert.pem" ""
    Please compare the file versions as I mentioned in my last reply. If they are not the same you will need to fix that (probably by reinstalling Vagrant 1.8.1).
            PS C:\HashiCorp\Vagrant\embedded\bin> vagrant up C:\HashiCorp\Vagrant\embedded\cacert.pem
            vagrant : The machine with the name 'C:\HashiCorp\Vagrant\embedded\cacert.pem' was not found configured for

            this Vagrant environment.
Now what do I do?
            Should I indeed be using PowerShell? Or should I open a VM manually in VirtualBox? (I've never used a VM before, so I'd be learning how from scratch.)
    Those questions are outside the scope of this mailing list. Strictly speaking this mailing list is for libcurl, the library the curl tool uses. Though an occasional curl tool question will come in and someone may answer it. For future curl questions please post to curl-users [2] and for vagrant post to their mailing list [3].
    Since I'm writing though I will tell you the problem with the command you are using is that you are specifying the certificate file as the machine you want to start which doesn't make any sense. Also, I use vagrant from the Windows command prompt and it works fine. You may want to try that instead of Powershell. To get it running should be as simple as:
    mkdir dst
    cd dst
    vagrant init data-science-toolbox/dst
    vagrant up
