Thread: Another failed connection

  1. #1

    Default Another failed connection

    I am getting this with firefox

    Code:
    Secure Connection Failed
    forums.opensuse.org uses an invalid security certificate.
    
    The certificate expired on 12/13/2008 12:39 PM.
    
    (Error code: sec_error_expired_certificate)
    
        * This could be a problem with the server's configuration, or it could be someone trying to impersonate the server.
    
        * If you have connected to this server successfully in the past, the error may be temporary, and you can try again later.
    
    Or you can add an exception…
    I can only connect using konqueror

    I went ahead and added the exception so that it would accept the expired certificate until they get it replaced.

    I did too. Of course, since there is no announcement, how do we know this is legitimate?

    The certificate has been updated, means this problem is now fixed.

    He's not a tech guy. I don't think they'd let him tinker with certificates :-)
