Hi All,

I can not access the following web site from IE 6 or IE 7, however I can access it from FireFox. I have added this site to the trust sites, lowered the security level to low. Still unable to access it.

The site seems to have invalid certificate, but why still accessible from Firefox 3.6.

It appears its security certificate is invalid or expired. I was able to open it in I.E. 8, but not without a warning regarding the security of the website.

Firstly i don't think there is anything to do with the Site's certificate, since it is a SSL site so it will have a cert.

How ever the site is being opened in Firefox , IE7 or IE8 the problem could be that the website is not supported by IE 6 or lower version. Also Chrome didn't opened the site.

because it is a self signed cert you will have to get the certificate and add it to your trusted root certificate store and then you may be able to access it. chrome 10/firefox complained about the certificate but allowed it after confirmation. ie8/9 will not open it.
