Default acess SSL website with BB

Please Login to Remove!

on my web server, I've created a web site, did a basic ssl setup with the certificate generated on the machine itself (no signature) on win2k3r2

I can't access it on the BB..
access denied: insecure SSL request

Smile Certificate problem?

The problem could be that the application doesn't like the self generated certificate, could be that it doesn't accept the cert because the host name on the cert is different than the server. Make sure the host name on the server matches the one on the cert. You may need to get a proper certificate , try it as the an http connection first, also maybe try testing with an ssl url that has a proper CA issued certificate.

In the J2SE world this problem can be circumvented by adding your own host name verifier to the Https Connection, however this functionality does not seem to exist in the J2ME io package, so you may just have to use a CA certificate as opposed to a self generated cert for it to work.

Default Sign the cert

Try self signing your own certificate, an un-signed cert will almost certainly not work, you can generate and sign certs with open ssl. its a multi step process. Here's a link for how to generate and sign your own cert, its for Mac, but its about the same for other *ix systems Using mod_ssl on Mac OS X, don't know about windows, but there must exist a simular procedure.

Default me too...

I actually signed my certificate. I can import it in IE7 but when I try import it on my boss's blackberry it refuses. He's using blackberry OS 4.0 so that might be part of the problem. I've seen quite a few references online that SSL works more easily under 4.1.

I would have hoped that adding the website as a trusted website under options TLS would have made it work but it had no effect.

What version are you using?

Default

I'm pretty sure there is a way to let the BB use a unsigned HTTPS site...
probably in the IT policy, but I can't find it...

anyone have any idea beside to sign the certificate ?
