Dear Mr. Eberhard:

Thanks. I've added your response to the Trac ticket, so the contractor can see it.

As my "More, Re: . . ." post said, we're on a "local-CA-issued" certificate in this particular case (which has never been an issue before, as this is the first time we've tried to use anything that actually *cared* where an SSL certificate came from).

I'm guessing that the certificate we need is the one I get by opening DCM (the one on our V6 box is so much faster and easier than the one on our V4 boxes!), selecting the system certificate store, clicking "Install local CA Certificate on Your PC," then "Copy and paste certificate"?

When I open that certificate in WinDoze, it's described as an "untrusted root certificate." I'm assuming that the contractor will know what to do with it, so that JDBC will accept our Host Servers certificate.
