Continuing to have a problem with Remote Access to Windows Home Server - Certificate Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am really lost here after reading the posts about this problem. I see people saying that it should work but it does not. I removed the thing, recreated it, tried the https://www.xxx.homeserver.com as well as the https://xxx.homeserver.com and no matter what I do i get the errors. The following is if I leave out the www :

    There is a problem with this website's security certificate.

     
     

    This organization's certificate has been revoked.

    Security certificate problems may indicate an attempt to fool you or intercept any data you send to the server.

  • I am having a similar issues.  My remote access was working just fine.  Then I updated my home server and with PP3 it installed a few other patches.  Not sure which ones it installed.  But after that it appears my homeserver's cert has been revoked.  I get the same error from inside the lan (https://server/remote) and outside the lan(https://xxx.homeserver.com).

    Anybody have any thoughts?

  • ok.. so I found one workaround for this that was posted elsewhere.  You have to choose a new domain name.  I had a couple reserved thru different emails.  Both of them give me the cert revoked error.  I released one and obtained a new one, I no longer got the cert revoked error.

    Now, how do I get the cert back on my old domain names?

  • Now, how do I get the cert back on my old domain names?
    Did you try to "pick a new domain name" and select the same name? That worked for me. The function description suggests you have to change names when you do it, but that is not the case.

  • Hm.. so I actually have 2 live ids.  On one I tried your suggestion and it worked!  On the other.. not so much.  So that would be server domain #2 that didn't work.  So I assigned server domain #2 to live id #1.  And it worked just fine.  However, switching server domain #2 back to live id #2 still results in the certificate being revoked.

  • Yep, if you have domain A on box A, then you use domain A on box B, the cert of domain A will be revoked.

  • Hmm.. Could you explain why?

    But, I have one box.  I have 2 live ids and a domain associated with each.  I have switched live ids (and domains) on this box.  Is that a reason for the cert to be revoked?  I never had any issues doing this before PP3.

    Is there a way to get a certificate un-revoked?

  • This will prevent Dynamic DNS clients two boxes from competing with each other.

    If you set up a domain name with your live Id, the certificate should be good. I don't understand what you mean by switch. Can you offer more details about how you switched?

    Thanks,

  • Well, I only have one box.  But I have 2 live ids.  Each live id has a homeserver domain associated with it.  There have been times I have enabled remote access on this WHS, signed on with a different live id, and regisitered a different domain than it previously had.
     

    Hm.. so I actually have 2 live ids.  On one I tried your suggestion and it worked!  On the other.. not so much.  So that would be server domain #2 that didn't work.  So I assigned server domain #2 to live id #1.  And it worked just fine.  However, switching server domain #2 back to live id #2 still results in the certificate being revoked.

    So in running a this test, I was using one WHS box, 2 live ids, and 2 domains.
