Certificate Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Is there a cheap and easy way around the certificate error that anybody is aware of?



    Shield icon

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

     
     

    The security certificate presented by this website was issued for a different website's address.

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

  • When going to a website with an address such as https://example.com, try adding the 'www' to the address, https://www.example.com.

  • If you are accessing your server from inside your network via http://server, and you use HTTP://xxxx.homeserver.com as your external URL, then no; Microsoft and GoDaddy supply a certificate that works using the homeserver.com domain, but not using the server name in an intranet environment. If you have an HP MediaSmart Server and are using one of the custom URLs that HP makes available (not xxxx.homeserver.com), then no again, or at least you would have to purchase and install a custom certificate on your server.

    If you can tell us more about exactly how you're accessing your server, and where you are when you see this error, we can give more specific help.

    Ken,

    Didn't HP recently release a cert for the HP MSS?  See Alex's post here.  (I don't use the HP MSS so I can't confirm.)
