    I am Authenticating Using WebAAA which allows me to bring up a web page,
    login and get redirected to my internet home page or any page on the internet.
    I bring up the Custom Web Page then I login. After login in it gives me the
    Certificate Error: Navigation Blocked. Even after installing a certificate I
    still get this page. I click continue to this website (not recommended) then
    I get to my home page. How do I get past this window show it doesn't show up
    everythime I logon using WebAAA Authentication. Any steps or help would be
    greatly appreciated.
    Thanks
    Scott

    I'm not sure what WebAAA is, but you did you install the root certificate
    that WebAAA is signed with? You need to launch IE elevated (right-click, Run
    as administrator...).
    1. Then navigate to the page that says it is blocked and continue on to the
    page where you see the certificate.
    2. Click the "certificate error" message in the address bar and click "View
    certificate."
    3. Click the Certification Path tab and select the highest cert in the list.
    4. Click "View Certificate." This will bring up another dialog.
    5. Click the "Install certificate" button

    At this point you should no longer get the error. The problem may be that
    you did not install the highest level certificate? All trust is based on the
    root, so you must install that one. Installing the web server certificate is
    not enough.

    WebAAA is just a way off authenticating through a Web Page through your
    switch or wireless switch solution. Colleges uses this and it will bring you
    to a logon page where you will have to logon with your user credentials
    before you get access to the internet. Once you logon you will get
    redirected to a web page such as a college home page.
    What I noticed is that I would click continue and I would see the
    certificate error. But it would continue connecting to the web page and the
    certificate error would be gone once the web page was brought up. So I had
    to click the back arrow a few times just so I would be able to see the
    certificate error while it was loading the web page just so I could click on
    the certificate error and go through the steps to fix my issue.

    My follow up question:
    Is there a spot in Internet explorer where these errors are stored and I can
    access the certificate error message in order to fix this issue without
    having to click the back arrow in order to see the error and correct it as I
    stated above.

    What I noticed is that I would click continue and I would see the
    So you did get it fixed then?
    I do not believe so. Pages that do redirects from secure web sites to
    insecure ones are very problematic this way because they hide the message
    from you and make it difficult to fix. To make matters worse, far too many of
    them only use HTTPS for the form submission, so you don't see the certificate
    on the login screen either. This is a terrible idea because it means that the
    user has no way to verify where the password is being sent before actually
    sending it. Many sites use that as an optimization technique though.

    Thanks for your help I was able to get it work. The only thing my view was
    grayed out so I just selected install certificates.
