In some cases, when connecting to a remote desktop or application for the first time, you might be prompted by the browser to accept the self-signed certificate used by the remote machine. You must trust the certificate before the connection can be made to the remote desktop or application.
About this task
Most browsers will give you the option to permanently trust the self-signed certificate. If you do not choose to permanently trust the certificate, you must verify the certificate every time you restart your browser. If you are using a Safari browser, you must permanently trust the security certificate in order to establish the connection.
- If your browser presents an untrusted certificate warning or a warning that your connection is not private, examine the certificate to verify that it matches the certificate that is used by your company.
