Guess what? This isn't how

Seriously, anybody know why IBM's main pages would trigger this? I was just going to download some IBM Domino software, but want to be sure I haven't missed something.

I have seen similar errors when I had the date on the computer set wrong. Check that first.

Ceritificate seems to only be valid for www.ibm.com not for ibm.com

Karl-Henry - Date is correct, fwiw.

Vitor - That seems like an oversight, no?

I'm guessing invalid or expired server certificate. Or, as K-HM says, a clock that's way off (could be on the server, though, not on your side).

Its the 2nd point under the Technical Details ... "The certificate is only valid for www.ibm.com"

Bob - Looks like is it invalid for ibm.com, but valid for www.ibm.com.

Paul - The thing is, I was sent to that page from another IBM page. I'm just baffled that it would be left like that, as I can't imagine it would look good to customers.
