Trusted Site Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I know that there are a lot of post with security certificate and trusted site errors, however all that I have read don't seems to fix my problem. First off, I don't want to add my website to the trusted site area in IE's security tab... mainly because I can not do this at work where I don't have Admin Rights, so it isn't really a solution for me. Here is the situation: I got name mismatches when I went to https://xxx.homeserver.com, I think because I have a domain name already that was pointing to my IP address. I fixed that by removing my IP from my personal domain name. I bought a year SSL from godaddy.com and applied it to my  personal domain name and now access WHS with https://www.myownnamehere.com. I am able to login and don't get a name mismatch error. However I do get an error when I try to remote login to WHS. The error asks me to add my website to the trusted sites. I thought that was the purpose for the SSL! Did I miss a step? I called Godaddy and they said that I have set up the SSL correctly with my WHS. Any Ideas on how to eliminate this error?

  • Even with a correct SSL cert you still need to add it to the trusted sites.

    Step 1 the SSL certificate secures your web connection and confirms that the certificate belongs to the site described - your server
    Step 2 you trust the site described - your server

    With both steps you have a secure method of trust - one or other doesn't quite do it.

    Even with both steps you would probably come unstuck yet again as your company probably does deep packet inspection and blocks any packets for any kind of remote session.  (I know my company does even though I have domain control and admin rights).
