Re: ipsCA and free .edu certs

I've been using their certs for almost 2 years. They require a chain certificate in the server to get past IE without a popup. The Oracle guy on campus has indicated problems getting the chain certificate in place using the tools Oracle provides to set up the application servers. Have you seen this issue?

Quoting Kenneth Arnold <bkarnold () CBU EDU>:

We are using them for four of our web servers running Oracle Application Server. We haven't had any problems with users lacking the root certificate in their browsers. I don't recommend them for imap and pop3 yet

Hi folks,

It was recently brought to my attention that ipsCA offers free 2 year
256 bit SSL certificates for educational institutions (in the .edu
domain).  Does anybody have any experience with them?  I note that their
root cert is bundled into Firefox, but does anyone know  about IE or
Safari?  Is there a limit to the number of certificates? Thanks,
