Hi.
Every time when I start a new browser (I user IE5.5) to lauch the servlet, the security alert screen pops. I need to click yes to go on. I know that my certificate is OK. In any way I can set up so the security alert screen will not pop?
Any ideas?
Thanks in advance for your help.

You weren't too specific in your post.
Did you create the certificate yourself using a keygen tool or something like that?
If so then MSIE (and other applications) will not recognise your certificate being issued from a trusted source.
You can import the certificate into MSIE's list of trusted roots by selecting:
- tools menu
- content tab
- certificates button
- trusted root certificate authorities
- import button and then follow the wizard's instructions
you can also remove it later.
If this isn't what you are after, then provide more details.
James.

James,
The certificate created is not recognized because it is not issued from a trusted source. I need to import one as you suggested.
Thanks a lot for your help!
