HTTPS Certificate Errors

edited March 2008 in Server
Is there a way to ignore certificate errors when communicating via
HTTPS? For example, ignore an expired date on the certificate?

RB Server 10.06

    HTTPS is controlled by the web server software and the certificate you have
    installed.

    I am not aware of any way to suppress those type of errors other than to
    update your certificate. You could try Googling about it.

    My understanding is that the whole point of using HTTPS is that you have a
    valid certificate - and that if the certificate is not valid the user is
    notified. When I purchase something with my credit card online I will not
    make the purchase unless the site has a valid certificate.

    Nard you are correct but we recently had a server certificate expire.

    Our ASTA data server allows you to ignore the error. (temporarily of
    course) I wondered if RB server had that setting.

    To solve this we built an option in the app that allows users to keep
    working via HTTP when the SSL HTTPS connection fails. Not as desirable
    but works in a pinch.
