Internet Explorer (any version) on Windows XP
Unfortunately, SNI support isnt available on Windows XP, even in IE8. IE relies on SChannel for the implementation of all of its HTTPS protocols. SChannel is an operating system component, and it was only updated with support for TLS extension on Windows Vista and later. --src: [blogs.msdn.microsoft.com...]
Actually, this is not related it Internet Explorer. This is a limitation of Windows XP. So that should read "No browser of any brand on Windows XP."Thanks for the additional information. I didn't intend to sound like it was an Internet Explorer thing.
Make sure your web server supports SNI and that your audience uses supported browsers, generally. While SNI is supported by all modern browsers, you'll need a dedicated IP if you need to support older browsers.source: [support.google.com...]
i bought ssl and hosting told u should have unique IP
Real question is: Are major Search Engines able to distinguish when the user is using their search utility(and let you them/you in their own words in "So called Control Panels" in clear wording what needs to be done).
Using an outdated browser? Or is it that Goog Said 1.1 and $M said "I don-now-dude"?
Or can the SNI problem be bypassed? Perhaps XP/IE users are used to seeing and bypassing those warnings. I'll pull my XP laptop out of the closet later on, see what happens.
Interestingly, I cannot access WebmasterWorld at all on that setup (unrelated to the HTTPS certificate).
