    Question install a valid SSL cert plz?

    Can you install a SSL cert please so there is no MITM snooping?.

    Self signed is OK, so no cost, would prefer there is no one listening in

    You need to elaborate more. Install a certificate where ? If anything you would need to install a self signed cert so only you have the certificate. What you have asked for makes no sense. Is this for a vpn connection back yo your house it's not clear ?

    Really? In that case why do we need to change passwords every month - over an unencrypted connexion?

    Exactly, and yes I meant for the forum, sorry if i wasn't clear but I thought posting int he forum section might be the right thing to do. Also Its not really working over SSL, gut instinct says its because of the use of the basehref (they point to HTTP protocol).

    Again I appreciate you updated the cert, thank you!
