Using Secure Communication

Note: This topic applies to the Edinburgh Release.

When you connect your web browser to the Smoothwall System’s web-based interface on a HTTPS port for the first time, your browser will display a warning that the Smoothwall System’s certificate is invalid. The reason given is usually that the certificate was signed by an unknown entity or because you are connecting to a site pretending to be another site.
