OS X Technologies :: Cannot Connect To Secure Websites

May 10, 2012

I was going to do some homework on Google Docs, and the login page would not load! It would simply try to connect for a while, then time out.After some experimenting, I noticed this happened with all secure web pages (https://), and that non-secure websites (http://) loaded fine. This happens in all browers. I tested Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.Now, this only happens on my user account. This does not happen on my moms account, which I am currently on.We initially thought it was an issue with the parental controls, so we completely disabled them. But the problem still persists.

MacBook Pro :: Not Accessing Some Secure Websites

Jun 6, 2014

Have updated clock and Apple ID locations.For some reason I am not able to access some bank websites from my Macbook, I just get a "Safari can't open the page "xxxxx" because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server "xxxxxxx". I can access these sites on the same network with my iPad. These are the options I have eliminated: 

BROWSER: Tried Safari, Firefox, Chrome. all with the same result (different message of course).

MODEM: I have connected the Macbook to different wifi networks (home and at work) with the same result, so it is not a modem issue.  

I currently write this post at work on a Mac Mini. The Mac Mini CAN access these websites without issue.This leads me to conclude that something deep in the duldrums of the MacBook itself is preventing access to these types of websites.Macbook Pro is late 2012 model running Mavericks 10.9.3..Work Mac Mini is running Lion 10.7.5

Applications :: Using Safari And Browsing Secure Websites?

Apr 27, 2004

I have been using Safari faithfully since it was released, and in the last week it has developed a strange problem. I can't recall doing anything different that would have caused this problem, but now whenever I try to load a secure website (https), I get the error message "Safari could not load the page https:xxxx because it could not connect to the server." I have tried resetting Safari, but that didn't fix the problem. I have also thrown away the following files (Safari_1.2.pkg, Safari (folder), Safari (application), and com.apple.Safari.plist) and reinstalling a new version of Safari, also without success. I should add that Internet Explorer will always load the pages that choke Safari, but I hate using this program. Has anyone ever heard of this before, and does anyone know how to fix it? Here is a link to the error message I get when I try to log in to my .Mac account:

Software :: Safari Can't Access Secure Websites?

Dec 25, 2009

My dad set up a managed account for me on my family's iMac and now Safari 4.0.3 will give me the the following error message every time I click on a link to or type the address of a secure website:

Safari can't open the page "pageAddress" because Safari can't establish a secure connection to the server "serverAddress".

I'm curious about what might cause this because it's stopping me from using a lot of user login pages (i.e.: the Google Accounts login page.) Is there some way that my dad could fix this (I'm not the administrator, as mentioned first.)?

OS X :: Can't Browse Secure Websites On Mac Through PPPoE Connection On Briged Router?

Mar 29, 2009

I've set up my Netgear DGN2000 router in bridge mode to accommodate 4 machines to connect to the internet through a PPPoE broadband connection. The mac connects through airport.

All the PC's in the setup can browse without problems.

The mac however can only log into certain secure websites (like facebook, online forums, online banking ext) but then no further browsing is possible. MSN can also not log on. Other websites seems to work just fine.

I'm running OS x 10.4.11, Firefox 3.0.8, Safari 3.0.4.

Steps I have already taken to try and solve the problem is:

Adjusted the MTU value (ranging fro 1500 to 1300) of the router and Mac airport.

Setup up the ISP DNS server ip on the router and / or Mac airport connection. I also tried certain "open" DNS ips.

Cleared the Mac DNS cache

Cleared the browser history and cookies.

OS X :: Possible To Connect Mac To PC Using VPN Secure Client?

Mar 4, 2009

I'm looking to buy a new computer and want to upgrade to a Mac. However, I need to be able to connect my home computer to my work desktop since I work from home. The Corp. help desk says I can't do it, but they're also not IT professionals so I'm not ready to take their word for it. Here's what I'm using.

VPN Secure Client NGX R60 HFA2 (Build 001)
Remote Desktop
Work Desktop - Windows XP Pro

Searching the internet, I get the feeling that NGX R60 refers to the PC (Windows) version and NGX R65 refers to the Mac version. If I use Boot Camp, can I switch to Windows mode and connect that way? Is it a terrible PITA to do?

MacBook Pro :: Why Can't Safari Establish Secure Connect With Facebook

Jul 1, 2014

I've tried doing things with proxy. I've tried resetting Safari. I've tried doing things with cookies. I've tried disabling extensions. Next step is to try throwing my laptop out the window. This only started happening yesterday and there is no issues with other sites. It's not my internet connection. I can't get to Facebook by direct URL or through google or through links in my history. Macbook Pro bought in 2012 with Mountain Loin.

OS X :: Safari Cannot Connect To Certain Websites

May 11, 2008

I have three computers on my home network; A dual 1.8 G5 with Leopard, a Macbook Pro with Leopard, and a Windows XP Box. My problem with Safari started about 3 months ago, when I tried accessing a website via my g5. Safari said it could not connect to the server. I assumed the site was down. However, I hopped on my MBP and the site worked fine. In fact, I found a lot of sites that my G5 didn't want to access that my MBP could, on the same network. I have flushed my DNS cache, reset safari, cleared safari's cache, reset my router, cable modem, checked the DNS servers. Everything seems identical between the MBP and the g5. The problem happens in both Safari and Firefox

OS X :: Cannot Connect To Specific Websites?

Jun 4, 2010

It has been this way ever since I reset the modem a few weeks ago. I cannot connect to certain websites that I know are not down. If I am able to connect briefly to a neighbor's wireless, the websites work fine. I just reset the modem a few minutes ago and the problem hasn't gone away. I've tried troubleshooting on google but all I get are PC solutions.

OS X :: Internet Working But Cannot Connect To Websites

Nov 1, 2010

My Internet connection is working fine, I can connect to adium, download a torrent, use an FTP client etc without problems. When I use Safari or any other browser I can't connect to any sites. I us usually get an error stating that it can't establish a connection or find the server. I'm using a Time Capsule as my router, I've tried resetting my modem, the Time Capsule, restarting the computer. The internet is fine, I'm connecting to adium etc, but the browser won't connect, when it does I can use the browser for a hour or 5 minutes, it's random. I've ride resetting the DHCP numerous times, the majority of the time it does nothing.

OS X :: Cannot Connect To FTP - No Login To Websites From Firefox

Jul 28, 2009

One day I could log in to any site using firefox, the next I couldn't log into anything. I type the password and username, when I click on "log in" nothing happens. It says "done" at the bottom left, but nothing has happened. Safari works fine. I would just get by, however after creating a website in IWeb I discovered anything FTP related will not work.

I have tried lots of different FTP clients such as (Transmit, cyber duck, firezilla, cross ftp) but nothing works. The passwords etc are all correct as they work on my mac at work. The only change I've made is installing little snitch, however nothing is restricted related with anything that would affect the current problem. I have tried usual suspects such as deleting cookie, erasing private data etc.

OS X :: Unable To Connect / Access Some Websites

Aug 9, 2009

I am new to Mac and have been struggling with this issue for the last week or so: there are a few websites I cannot access anymore (such as www.westpac.com.au, www.telstra.com.au, www.optus.com.au and a few others). As far as I can guess it is not:strictly *.au website related (or at least I think) because I can access some others *.au websites and some other in *.com or *.fr don't work either. My ISP (iinet in Australia) as the websites mentioned above work from my PC when I connect it from home. Below the result from a PING on the first 2 websites in the list above:

PING www.westpac.com.au ( 56 data bytes
36 bytes from TenGigabitEthernet7-1.ken29.Sydney.telstra.net ( Communication prohibited by filter
Vr HL TOS Len ID Flg off TTL Pro cks Src Dst

PING www.telstra.com.au ( 56 data bytes
--- www.telstra.com.au ping statistics ---
37 packets transmitted, 0 packets received, 100% packet loss

I have this issue from both my iMac and my Macbook Air, on which I have set up no firewall or other specific filter. I am using a Belkin modem, on which I have desactivated the WiFi to use a TimeCapsule as a WiFi router. I get the same issue when I try to connect from Safari, Firefox or Chrome. I have exhausted all tips and tricks I have from the PC word.

Applications :: Macbook Won't Connect To Certain Websites

I don't think I've got anything blocked as far as a firewall goes. I've tried connecting to [URL] and [URL] and it won't connect. Other sites work fine. I tried my neighbor's W-LAN and I couldn't connect either but he connected to squarespace on his macbook pro, so I think it's something with my computer and not my apartment's W-LAN connection.

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Air Won't Connect To Some Websites

Jun 28, 2014

I can't get my macbook air to connect to some website. Most are running fine but the few that dont work say that they cant connnect. I've cleared my cache and when I try to look them up on disk utility it comes up as "Request time out".

Software :: Unable To Connect / Cannot Access Certain Websites

Jan 5, 2006

I am having trouble accessing select websites (apple.com, usps.com, timewarnercable.com, vivalavinyl.org, amongst others). I tried with Safari, Firefox, Opera, IE, but to no avail. I used to be able to access these sites with no problem, and I am truely baffled as to why I can't get to them all of a sudden.

Here'S the error message I get in Firefox:
Unable to connect
Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at www.apple.com.
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

OS X Server V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Cannot Connect To Sever Websites

Apr 28, 2012

I am running multiple services with the latest version of OS X 10.6 Server on my MacMini (web, mail, ichat, address book, etc.) . When I try to open my websites I get an "unable to find sever message". Everything has been working fine for the last 2 years and no changes have been made to the server settings, ISP, or DNS. All other services are working as they should. The server is hooked up to an Airport Extreme via a cable modem with a static IP. I have tried the following thus far:

1) restarted the server, airport extreme, and cable modem

2) checked the DNS via the web and my site addresses are pointing to my static IP address

3) turned Web services off and on again in Server Admin

4) checked the Airport port mapping to make sure Web Service (Port 80) was still open

Mac Pro :: Secure Empty Trash Is Secure?

May 10, 2010

I have about 60 GB of data on a new 750 GB drive that I want securely erased as I am passing that drive on to someone else.

Zero out the drive or do a 7 pass is secure BUT takes a long time for 750 GB

What if I drag those files to trash and do a SECURE EMPTY TRASH - much quicker as I am not writing 750 GB of zeroes but is it as secure?

OS X :: Is Mac More Secure Than Windows 7?

Jan 2, 2011

I am well aware that in practice, Mac OS X is vastly superior in terms of virus protection to Windows. What I am wondering is if this is solely due to the popularity of Windows, or if given an equal market share of Macs and equal number of equally skilled, equally determined hackers Macs would still come out as more secure.

Can anyone with more technical knowledge of the underlying OS architectures answer this question?
