This certificate was signed by an unknown authority

Forgive me if this problem was covered in a previous post, I searched and did not find my issue.

First, the server appears to work fine in every way except for one… All the client programs I have tried (Pidgin, Adium, & Trillian) all have the same issue, they all warn the certificate is signed by an unknown authority.

My certificate is through COMODO and is valid.

I am able to connect to the admin console via the internet and the certificate works. I.e. brings up the admin console without any certificate problems.

On the client side in Adium if I right click on the account and select show server certificate it displays: and warns about the unknown authority.

Within the admin console I have imported my certificate information by clicking on the “Manage Store Contents”. All seems OK there too. The status is a red ribbon icon with a green check mark on it.

If there is more information required to solve my issue please just let me know and I will do my best to provide it. I am a hack at best when it comes to this stuff and this has me stumped.

I am running OpenFire 4.0.2 on a Windows 2012 R2 Server.
