Thread: Konqueror, localhost and the certificates

    Default Konqueror, localhost and the certificates

    Hallo,

    I have the following problem with konqueror.

    Eveytime when I am trying to enter https://localhost:10000 (this is webmin) or https://localhost:631, konqueror asks me in a popup the following (translated from german):

    "The authentification of the server has failed.
    The certificate does not suite to the server.
    The certificate has not been signed by a trustable authentification authority"

    Then I press "continue".

    Then the next popup appears asking me:

    "Do you want to always accept this certificate without any request"

    And the possible buttons are "always" or "only this session".

    The problem is that I always press on "always" but obviously konqueror is not remembering this certificate since I have to press all the buttons a hundred times in the ongoing session and every new session.

    In firefox, I was only asked once and the certificate was stored in list.

    Does anyone know how to fix this problem in konqueror??

    Thanks

    Is probably a bug (would be nice if you reported in bugzilla), but I wonder if your problem might also be addressed by simply creating a certificate with the CN "localhost" in your KDE keystore.

    Before you do that, you might take a look at the properties of the certificate you're using. My guess is that the certificate CN is the actual Hostname set for your machine so if you use that name instead of localhost that will probably also work.

    Hum!

    If you don't know how to create it, why are you using https? Use plain http
    instead, it is localhost after all.

    There is a module in Yast for certificate creation.
