Windows Home Server and pfSense certificate issue



  • Hello Everyone,
    I have just recently migrated over to a pfSense box and everything is working as advertised, however i do have one problem. i am running a WHS (windows home server) on my network and have configured all ports to forward correctly, although when i try to access my remote page from the LAN or from a remote machine i presented with "The server's security certificate is revoked!" error. But i cant figure out how i am supposed to add the cert for my whs to pfsense. the other anomaly is i can access the site from my android phone running google chrome. any help is appreciated.

    Matt

    what does your cert being revoked have to do with pfsense??

    pfsense has nothing to do with the certs for bithost.homeserver.com, what is the CRL for your cert?

    bithost.homeserver.com
    SHA1: 53598906e3629ea6a964b198f00aaec9aca69f7c
    RSA 2048 bits / SHA1withRSA
    REVOKED

    So grabbed your cert, took a look at serial number - and yup on the crl  which you can grab here

  • thanks for the reply, but up until Tuesday when i built the pfsense machine i was running a linksys router (BEFSR81) and had absolutely no problem, so just by deduction i was figuring it had to do with the new firewall. i can try changing the host name via live domains and see if i get issued a new cert and see if that works. but the details of the cert say its valid until 2018. maybe i am missing something, i am not to keen on certs.

    Look at my edit – its clearly on the revoked list..

    And no the cert your serving does not say its good til 2018, says 5/26/2017

    if you turn off verification you can get in, btw that background is just plain horrific!!  Maybe that is why they revoked your cert on the 28th ;)
