IPhone Push Notification from ASP.NET C# Moon APNS

Consider a scenario, I need to send a push notification to IPhone when I add a new card (card id and card name) at back end(from ASP.NET C# Web application)

At First, reference these Moon APNS dlls.


Try the code below, it fetches all the iphone device ids from table, and send message to each devices.

internal void SendPushNotificationIPhone(int CardId, string CardName, string Path)




DataTable tab = datalogic.GetDeviceTokens(); // Getting all device ids from the table

var p = new List<NotificationPayload>();

for (int i = 0; i < tab.Rows.Count; i++)


string message = “Card Added”;

var payload = new NotificationPayload(tab.Rows[i][0].ToString(), message, 1, “default”);

payload.AddCustom(“ID”, CardId);   // Custom fields as id and card name

payload.AddCustom(“CardName”, CardName);



var push = new PushNotification(true, Path, “password”);

//path is iphone app’s p12 certificate file, put password for that certificate also,

var rejected = push.SendToApple(p);  // error list

foreach (var item in rejected)






catch (Exception ep)


//  Error

    Hi, I’m getting an error message “A call to SSPI failed, see inner exception.” while executing _apnsStream.AuthenticateAsClient, inside the OpenSslStream method.

    Since it’s inside in a try/catch section, afterwards, when it tries to execute _apnsStream.BeginRead it produces an innerexeption “uknown error while processing the certified”

    Could you please help me out to figure out what’s the problem?

      Hi Salazar,
      I think the certificate file is incorrect. I faced some problem when i first tried because i got an incorrect certificate from the iPhone developer.
