website's security certificate.

I have installed Zenworks on the server, and it's accessed through the web browser internally(when inside the LAN), each time I try to access it by typing on the address bar of the browser https://servername, it comes up with the page showing up in the attached file. I will have to click on "Continue to this website(not recommende)" in order to access the web page.
any work around to prevent this page from showing up?

Thanks

SSL Overview from the Customer's Browser viewpoint

Browser checks the certificate to make sure that the site you are connecting to is the real site and not someone intercepting.
Determine encryption types that the browser and web site server can both use to understand each other.
Browser and Server send each other unique codes to use when scrambling (or encrypting) the information that will be sent.
The browser and Server start talking using the encryption, the web browser shows the encrypting icon, and web pages are processed secured.

The easiest way would be to view and install the certificate localy on the broswer in which you are using to connect to the webpage.  Then also add the website to the trusted sites in the security settings of the browser.

 
The hard way would be to get a real SSL cert that matched the website name that your connecting to.  So if you were connecting to http://server.home.com then you would need to get a SSL cert with that name.

1. In Windows Internet Explorer 7, click Continue to this website (not recommended). 80% the issue would be resolved once you follow this step.
If not, you will see a red Address Bar and a certificate warning appear, keep clicking on next & cu will get a PHISHLING FILTER. Click on "YES", close ie and re- open.

2. Another cause for this issue is that the computer's time/ date could be wrong, because in that case, the certificates may show up as expired. Change the computers time to a different date and month and revert back to the old one (Believe me, it works !!!)

4. In rare scenarios, resetting modem & for Windows Vista users, right clicking on Internet Explorer icon, "Select Run as Administrator." has worked.

 

In Internet explorer 6, none gets the error "There is a problem with this website's security certificate"...

 

In Internet Explorer 6, the user will only receive a message that resembles the following:

 

"Information you exchange with this site cannot be viewed or changed by others. However there is a problem with the site's security certificate."

The security certificate was issued by a company you have not chosen to trust. View the certificate to determine whether you want to trust the certifying authority.

 

The error "There is a problem with this website's security certificate. The security certificate presented by this website was not issued by a trusted certificate authority." is dedicated for ie 7.

 

This is infact caused due to Phishing Filter in IE 7 for enhanced security.
