Certificate error RRS feed

  • Question

  • When accessing my server at https://<myipaddress> in IE7, I'm getting a certificate error telling me that the cert was created for a different address. I can still connect and have full access. It appears that this is normal, according to the help section in WHS. Is this correct? Or, can it be fixed? Thanks.

  • SSL certificates are created / assigned on a hostname basis, not an IP address.  The ceriticate in WHS is self-signed I believe, so certificate errors will always pop-up unless you get a verisign certificate (or another provider) for whatever hostname you want to use to access your server.  I believe you should be able to add your self-signed certificates to IE 7 to stop some of the errors, but I believe it will continue to show up red in the URL bar.
