IMPORTANT! BlueSocket error "Invalid/Untrusted Certificate"

Postby Melloware » Fri Sep 19, 2008 9:04 am

If BlueSocket is crashing on you it is most likely because your SSL certificate at your college or university is invalid. Sometimes the error appears as the following: "Error trying to authenticate (ErrorDomain=NSURLErrorDomain Code=-1005 UserInfo=0x1284a0 "lost network connection")"


THE PROBLEM: Currently if you attempt to open a bluesocket page to log in to the network I get the message "Certificate Invalid, continue anyway?" When I tap OK it allows me to sign in...but I don't think that your app is able to bypass that situation.


THE SOLUTION: You can just edit the Settings and you will see two settings for "Ignore SSL Certificates" and enter your institutions Bluesock URL and those certificate errors will be ignored. Continue reading the thread below....

In version 1.4 just do the following to fix this...

- Added two new settings for Ignoring Invalid SSL Certificates. SSl1 and SSl2. In the first SSL1 enter your universities Bluesocket site and in URL2 enter http://www.google.com like this if you are getting Invalid or Untrusted Certificate errors.

SSL URL 1: https://bluesocket.myschool.edu/
SSL URL 2: http://www.google.com/


Or try...

SSL URL 1: bluesocket.myschool.edu
SSL URL 2: http://www.google.com
