Now we sneak beans into BeanBay as soon as they land and once a month announce them in:
Mostly we land in large enough quantities that most people get a shot at them.
ATTN MAC USERS
Had a CS'rs on a Mac yesterday with a problem.
He cannot access BeanBay on a Mac desktop or tablet in either Safari or Chrome but on his android phone it worked fine. He's cleared cache, cookies and all the normal things to try but nothing works (and it did a month or so ago).
Anyone on a Mac something that can test BeanBay for me please?
On the road but it opened fine for me on safari on iOS 13 on my phone Andy
Mac OS 10.14.6. Fine on Chrome, Safari and Firefox
Thanks all, I was pretty sure that I would have heard a lot of noise if everyone on Mac products was having trouble.
Might be an antivirus package or similar product giving him grief. I'll see what else we can find out.
Antivirus is was...
He turned off AVG and BeanBay worked again.
AVG and its offshoots. Has caused more trouble over the years than anything it has purported to solve...
I get ssl errors through our Fortigate firewalls. It doesnít like the cert for some reason (short TTL on it maybe, or cert provider). Only for Beanbay, forum is ok. Had to use an external adsl line to buy my beans.
Cert provider, TTL, time on server etc were all okay. Chrome and other browsers here all show the certificate to be valid too. Everyone that has had trouble were using AVG on *nix so the link is there somewhere but not all AVG and not a *nix.
This morning I have renewed the certificate and it tests fine both here and off-site: https://www.digicert.com/help/
...so hopefully it was just a glitch in the *nix lookup of the Root CA intermediate certificate and renewing it will set things right!
Thanks for testing Rockford.
I'm not much the wiser to the original problem but the SSL certificate equivalent of "shut up and reboot" seems to have fixed it.
I posted about express post price increase here but then decided it made more sense in the News section.
...so you 'aint losing your mind if you saw it here earlier this afternoon.
Some advanced firewalls like FortiGate can do it automatically. They call it "SSL inspection".
Quick googling shows that AVG got a feature called "AVG Web Shield". Which is a man-in-the-middle too.
These days everyone wants to spy on you.
Yes, that was my thought too, "man at the end as opposed to the traditional man in the middle"
The AVG and Fortigate both "hack" into SSL packets they should leave alone, if the linked Root CA intermediate certificate took too long to lookup it could cause that issue too.
Stupid question I know but Iím a newbeeeeee is it hard to roast the beans yourself (ie oven)
