I have built a vmware workstation XP box and I am trying to installl a web ap that uses a program to retrieve the files from a remote website.  I  am getting an error related to the websites cerifitcate.  When I go to the website directly using ie I get the message "there is a problem with this website's security certificate.

I can access the website fine with any other computer, but I only get this message from the vmware workstation.  I have installed the certificate which is valid, but I still get the message.  I am running the XP box in bridge ethernet mode.

Any ideas/??

You are getting the Cert Error since it is a self-signed certificate.
If you are using third party signed certificates such as certs from VeriSign, RSA or Thawte Consulting, you won't be seeing such errors.

Its not a self signed certificate.  Its from Verisign and it isn't my cert but the vendor who wrote the app.  My other computers at my office I can access this site and doesn't get the error.  I only get the error from this VM.
