Missing Certificate with WebFolders4WHS


A user remotely connecting to a Windows Home Server computer configured with WebFolders4WHS may receive the following error:

The folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another

or a dialog titled "Select the certificate you want to use" that allows the user to select from an empty list the certificate they want to use to secure the connection.


This error is caused by when a user connects using a domain name other than their configured name that the server's certificate is configured for.


Connect to the Home Server using the domain name instead of another one unless a certificate has been generated for that name as well.
