What browser / OS? Can you look at the certificate and see what's wrong with it?


When I hit login it takes me to the URL which works fine. I didn't try to log in.

You on a work/corporate connection by any chance? Maybe SSL interception happening?

I'm a geek, a gamer, a dad and an IT Professional. I have a full rack home lab, size 15 feet, an epic beard and Asperger's. I'm a bit of a Cypherpunk, who believes information wants to be free and the Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.
