Cisco SSL VPN Cient for WebVPN - Connection hangs when approving certificate

Our org uses the Cisco SSL VPN Cient for WebVPN. When loggin on I put in my credentials and press OK. The lightweight client loads and then warns me that the certificate has an error on it and demands that I view the cert and press OK.

When the cert shows up, I cannot press OK as the process just hangs and will not continue.  All other systems besides the laptop log in just fine.

I wiped the system out and reloaded XP - same result. put on service pack 2 - same. Wiped out again and tried SP1 only - same - arrgggghh!

Anyone run into this or have any idea why it would behave this way? Thanks!

What are you running the host on? a 3000?
What do you get if you just run a web browser using https at the concentrator?

I don't have control over the cisco equipment. I've been told by our router guy that it's my problem and that all other systems are working fine with it. I have tried a couple of others and they have no problems. With http or https results are the same.

Not quite sure then how we move this forward.
Does the laptop have a personal firewall or security system (Symantec or Mcaffee for example) installed?

Thanks Kieth but I found a workaround that works. I went to a system that works OK and then to it's certificate database and exported the certificate. Opened the troubled laptop and imported the certificate. Connected on the first attempt. It looks like it could not install/import the cert automatically and hung at that phase. I just wish there was some sort of error or log that would let me know why it could not continue. I appreciate your participation. - Paresh
