SSL error message
- site visitor using MAC gets error when accessing SSL area

Anybody ever run into a situation where a website is SSL-enabled [40-bit] and the certificate is valid for another 6 months... however a user using a MAC keeps getting the following error within his browser when trying to enter the SSL-enabled portion of the site:

"The identity certificate is invalid."

We're using BrowserHawk, so if any browser out there didn't support SSLs, a message would be given to the site visitor informing them to download a newer browser.

Just wondered if anyone else encountered this message for a similar situation. It's for a high-traffic site and the site needs optimized for ALL browser types possible. Thanks for any assistance.

I have run into it before where the certificate file was corrupt on the users side. They fixed by removing the browser and and the old directory (some browsers will leave the certificates behind after install) and reinstalling.
