I can't connect to secure(https) web pages like gmail or facebook through my Firefox browser. All regular (http) sites work fine. I would try IE7 but, it doesn't do anything. It pulls up the "cannot display the webpage" page no matter what.

I'm running windows XP.
I am connected to the internet, I can ping gmail and facebook.
Java is enabled.
I have one firewall, Windows firewall. I have tried connecting with it disabled. Still the same problem.
I'm connected through a router. Linksys WRT54GS wireless
I also can not connect to Windows update.

Can anyone help me?:4-dontkno

Re: Can not connect to secure websites

I've tried doing a power cycle and fixing winsock but still nothing :(

I'm sure its the computer thats the problem. I had another computer running through the router and it worked fine.

Re: Can not connect to secure websites

haha :laugh:

anyway, Even though your other computer works fine, I think it's your router's firewall. It needs to have port 443 open, or just have the firewall disabled. That's the only thing I can think of. I also suggest getting a firewall other than windows. Windows firewall is kinda suckish :grin:

If that doesn't work, try going into the linksys configuration and go to Applications & Gaming and set port 443 to forward toyour IP address with both protocols. I don't know what to do if that doesn't work. I have a linksys WRT54G and it works fine even with port 443 closed, so what I said might not to it, but try it anyway.

Re: Can not connect to secure websites

Aha! Got it.

I uninstalled Norton awhile ago and it turns out there was still things running in the background. But after I ran the Norton removal tool I'm connecting perfectly.

Thanks for the help guys :smile:
