Using DSS API from within a plugin

This is a loose follow-up to this question:

I'm trying to experiment with different types of plug-ins. I would like to be able to access the public python api from in a custom plugin. If I follow the "from inside DSS" instructions here (, I get the following error message:

Test failed: API Ticket not available

If I try to use the "from outside DSS" method I am getting an SSL certificate error (that's probably on my server configuration - this is a test server).

Any tips or guidance would be much appreciated.
