FWIW, I just tried setting this up for the first time and failed, so I
must be doing something wrong. Apparently the certificate isn't valid.
(if i click on it, no details are available... and clicking on 'always
trust this...' just brings me back to the original "can't verify the
identity of chat.uvm.edu- SSL error") I am using ichat 4.08, and its
working for my aim account.
Other options available (that don't seem to help) are kerberos 5
authentication, and 'automatically discover server and port'.
Interesting that it keeps reverting back to port 5223 instead of trying
to use 5222. Any ideas?
