Xamarin (android) with SignalR Core can't connect to the hub using websocket

0

I am making a simple cross platform game and want to use SignalR (ASP.Net core 3.1). I have installed nuget package - Microsoft.AspNetCore.SignalR.Client. This all worked as expected, but then I realized that the Android (9.0) client is not using the websocket. Then I wrote the following code on the server:

        app.UseEndpoints(endpoints =>
        {
            endpoints.MapHub<GamesControlHub>("/hubs/GamesControlHub", options => {
                options.Transports = Microsoft.AspNetCore.Http.Connections.HttpTransportType.WebSockets;
            });
        });

Also I added the following code to the client class

        connection = new HubConnectionBuilder()
            .WithUrl(baseAddress + HUB_ROUTE, HttpTransportType.WebSockets)
            .Build();

After this, the android client cannot establish a connection to the server side. No error exception is raised, just waiting for the code to execute:

        await connection.StartAsync();

However, the Windows client can establish a connection to the server without any problems with their code. For android I changed the transport and it worked well. I also tried to have the server and phone on the same local network.

This file contains the Startup.cs code and the server and client hub code: Git gist

Using logging I got the following:

After delving into the topic, I realized that the problem occurs when using the https protocol.
