Good afternoon,

Thanks for the response. I'm not seeing the .rtrc file in my home
directory. I added the username, password and URL via environment variables
and I'm now receiving the following new error message:

Server error: Can't connect to <RT site ip address:>:443 (certificate
verify failed)
