Allowing self-signed certificates

April 2, 2009 at 15:21:47
Specs: Small Business Server 2003, N/A
My computer runs SBS 2003. When I connect to the companies "Remote Web Workplace", Internet Explorer tells me there is a problem with the web server's certificate, and suggests I don't continue to the site.

Our company uses a self-signed certificate, so how do I go about telling IE not to alert me and allow me to just go directly to the site?

Either add it to the trusted sites or use Firefox and allow the exception to the certificate.

I tried adding it to the certificate store and also setting it as a trusted site. Didn't work. I ended up having to clear my Internet history/cookies/temp files and then it all worked fine.

Have them send you the cert in encrypted zip or secure email or even floppy/usb.

Install the cert.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Already got it working. For some reason even though the certificate was installed in the trusted root store, it wasn't recognized until I cleared the items mentioned above.
