LKBEN10673: You cannot connect to Citrix Presentation Server and get SSL Error 61


SSL Error 61: You have chosen not to trust "Root SGC Authority", the issuer of the servers security certificate


The server certificate received is not trusted (SSL error 61)


Users will receive SSL Error 61 if the certificate chain does not meet the requirements set out above. Citrix Technical Support has encountered two particular certificate faults:

1. The Enhanced Key Usage field is present in an Identity certificate but the field does not contain “Server Authentication.”
2. An Intermediate certificate has been used to sign other certificates but does not contain the “Certificate Signing” key usage.

In other words, your certificate is not valid.
