Invalid Security Certificate

Post by vk3xem » Wed Mar 02, 2011 12:57 pm

I am using the Firefox Addon NetUsage and it usually works great, I monitor 3 different Exetel accounts on my browser.

But today each time they try to refresh I get a pop-up window say Invalid Security Certificate. Is anyone else experiencing the same problem? Does Exetel have to chage the Security Certificate?

I am monitoring 5 different netusage accounts. I do not get that message.
Netusage version 1.2.305.1

I just upgraded to the latest version and no change, still getting the Invalid Security Certificate.

Browsers are happy, coming up with a good certificate:
http://www.exetel.com.au
GT54269263, See http://www.rapidssl.com/resources/cps (c)11, Domain Control Validated - RapidSSL(R)
AU serialNumber: DlFfejIHnE4PbTQRrvmZIW2GUm5esYl1

Issuer: RapidSSL CA GeoTrust, Inc. US

Not valid before 16/01/11 06:03:00 GMT
Not valid after 20/03/14 00:16:00 GMT
Public Key 2048 bits
etc....

However if I enter the site from a terminal openssl s_client -showcerts -connect http://www.exetel.com.au:443 the certificate spews out, but it then prints: Verify return code: 20 (unable to get local issuer certificate. I wonder if this is all that is choking Netusage. My own essay at usage metering by script deliberately didn't check.

I am unsure, I got Firefox to ignore Certificates for Exetel and that appears to have solved the problem.

Which version of FF are you using?
