    Re: how to handle the certificate issue in HTTPS request

    I recommend fixing the server - your server needs a valid SSL certificate issued by Verisign or Geotrust or one of the major SSL houses that have their certificate's in the root chain on the device.

    You get the same kind of problem if you go to https://amazon.com/

    Thanks paul now it is more clear.

    so we cannot block this dialog from client side.

    I seem to remember there was a problem with XCA as the version is a newer version and I battled to get it working - just something worth remembering.
