I've been adding several "Network Locations" on my vista computer, and worked perfectly fine with it for a while. They are https:// links to a Sharepoint server.
For the past 2 days, I have the following problem: when trying to access these network places, I get a pop window asking to select a certificate, with an empty certificate list to choose from !
I tried to delete all the network places, and re-create it. But now when I right click on "Computer" go to "Add network places", enter the name of the ressource (ex: https://my.domain.com/Documents
), the same popup appear with the empty certificate list, and I can't add the location at all.
The sharepoint server uses IIS, and the http certificates are self-signed.
When I use internet explorer to go to these ressources, it works just fine.
I have no problem from other computers. So something has happened to vista for starting to behave this way. I haven't changed any security settings...
Here is what I tried:
I re-generated a self-signed certificate to put on the IIS server at the other end. I downloaded the CA certificate on my computer, and imported it using the certificates MMC. Now I see the CA root certificate into my personal certificates.
I went to "Add a network location" and was hoping to see my root certificate in the popup... Still shows a "Select certificate" window with no certificates inside to select from !!!...
This is driving me crazy !!! Anyone has a suggestion ?
