Date Wed, 10 Sep 2003 20:57:52 GMT
Hi Derek,

I don't think the CA is the problem here (at least not yet).  The 
message when the CA is not supported is something like "untrusted

different, or because the cert is for a domain instead of a host (e.g. instead of

In regard to untrusted certs, importing the cert into the keystore will 
solve the problem.
