Subject server certificate
Date Fri, 07 Oct 2005 14:59:03 GMT
Just checking out mp2 and I received this when it reached Apache-Test:

Fetching external item into 'mod_perl-2.0\Apache-Test'
Error validating server certificate for '':
  - The certificate is not issued by a trusted authority. Use the
    fingerprint to validate the certificate manually!
Certificate information:
  - Hostname:
  - Valid: from Jan 26 14:18:55 2005 GMT until Jan 26 14:18:55 2007 GMT
  - Issuer:, Starfield 
Technologies, Inc.
, Scottsdale, Arizona, US
  - Fingerprint: 19:51:6b:9b:03:78:2b:4b:0f:02:77:ed:2a:85:ef:93:ed:b6:ff:95
(R)eject, accept (t)emporarily or accept (p)ermanently?

Is this normal? I haven't seen it happen before.

How does one "use the fingerprint to validate the certificate manually"?

The (mis-named) page 
makes no mention of this.  Perhaps it should?
