Weblog:   Google Talk and iChat SSL Error - 9843

Response to: Fails in Fire, too.

In case someone else is hunting down the problem.


I noticed when I did the packet capture that the SSL certificate being issued from Google is from Thawte, but the iChat config instructions on the Web site say to allow self-signed certificates.


Could Google have changed certificates without telling anyone, and iChat is balking at the change? Who knows.
