When connecting to a secure site on a Windows server on the local
network (private IP) FireFox gives the following error:

"server.mydomain.com uses an invalid security certificate.

"The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown.

"(Error code: sec_error_unknown_issuer)"

IE also complains "There is a problem with this website's security

FF will let you import the cert, IE will let you continue to the site.

The Win server is not in the directory tree, but I don't notice that
this makes any difference as a server that is in the directory tree also
gives certificate errors.

But, is there any way of getting rid of these pesky messages for servers
on the private LAN?
