Why am I getting browser warning from my EZproxy server?

  • When I use HTTPS with my EZproxy server I get a browser warning even though I have a wild card certificate installed.
Applies to
  • EZproxy

Follow these steps:

  1. Verify in the messages.txt file that EZproxy is running as proxy by hostname.
  2. Verify that the wildcard certificate installed is in the correct format. The wildcard certificate must be specific to the EZproxy server name.
  3. The correct format can be verified at SSL certificate options.  Please note the column labeled Proxy by Hostname and row Certificate Authority Issued Wildcard.
