Hi Jim
Not sure if this is the issue but if you have other media resources loading
(eg. CSS, gif, jpg etc) on your page then these also need to be behind your
certificate. The browser https padlock will show as broken if there are
insecure assets loading on a secure page.

> I have an Omnis Javascript application running on a client site.  The app is

> outside their firewall via a secure port in their firewall.  When I do this,
> the url looks like this:
>   <https://12.345.67.89:5922/rfMyApp.htm>
> In the above example, 12.345.67.89 is the IP address of the firewall, and port
> 5922 is a secure port opened to the server.  Apache is listening on this port.
> This all works perfectly well, except that users get a warning saying that the
> site may not be secure.  My client has asked that I purchase a trusted
> certificate for the site.  I have done the following:
> 1) Gave the server a host name of jimsdomain.com
> 2) Registered jimsdomain.com and purchased a trusted certificate.  [note: the
> domain name is not associated with an IP address]
> 3) Added the certificate in Server Manager on the server, and it shows up as
> valid
> BUT - I still get warning messages in my browser when I access the app, since
> the url that I type in <https://12.345.67.89:5922/rfMyApp.htm> does not match
> the certificate name 'jimsdomain.com'
> Is there a way to do this?  Do I need to install a certificate on the
> firewall?
