Macan Forum blocked

Post by SAC1 » Sat Jul 15, 2017 8:06 am

On my BlackBerry 10 smartphone I can no longer access this web site. I get this message......


There is then no facility shown to allow as a trusted site, as it was in the past. How can it be unblocked?

On a similar note, I had a 'server not found' message all day yesterday on Explorer. Luckily I had Wimbledon, Tour de France and F1 to watch ...

Today will be a struggle as I also need to add the Hamburg World Triathlon series to my viewing list - I'm running out of screens!

Your BB10 needs to trust the certificate used to sign all traffic between you and the website.

The certificate seems to be signed by these guys:

Screen Shot 2017-07-15 at 08.12.30.png

Algo: SHA-256 with RSA Encryption
Not valid before: Friday, 14 July 2017 at 10:17:00 British Summer Time

Stated policy: This Certificate may only be relied upon by Relying Parties and only in accordance with the Certificate Policy found at https://letsencrypt.org/repository


The website was having a world of problems yesterday - showing some evidence of being migrated to a new host, which might explain why it has a new certificate that was only valid from yesterday.

All my browsers and devices trust this CA and the certificate (macOS Safari/Opera/Firefox, iOS Safari on iPhone and iPad, Chrome and Edge on Win10).

That doesn't mean it's trustworthy, just that a fairly common set of kit does trust it.

Is your BB10 fully up-to-date? Or maybe it knows something the rest of the world doesn't ;-)

No certificate issues for me, but " server not found" was the message most of Friday.

I've just done a software update and the problem still exists. See above.

Previously every time I visited the site using my BB10 i had to tick an exception box to gain access, but since yesterday even that option is not available. Rob - Is there an Administrator fix?

I can access [as now] via my Windows 10 laptop or iPad, but the smartphone is what i always have with me and so frustrating that i cannot now use it to get to this Forum. Every other site / app that I use is still fully accessible.

I had this on my computer but not smart phone. I cleared the cookies to get it working.

There was an upgrade going on yesterday to the hosting, I think it might be a DNS issue which will take time to propagate through. It does have a new SSL certificate too. Maybe blackberry has the old one cached somewhere?
