    I'm trying to access a site in Safari and i keep getting an error that Safari cannot connect because it cannot establish a secure connection to the server. I can access the site on my MacBook Air. The site is www.dccourts.gov/pa

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I am having the same problem with mine as well. The weird thing is that i can access the website I want to visit on my iPhone 4 but it won't work on my iPad? I tried allowing all cookies, cleared the cache, and deleted all cookies but no help. I have a hard time believing that the iPad won't do it if my phone does. Thanks in advance.

    Same here. I can access that site on my iPhone 4, but not my iPad. Very bizarre.

    I got the same, even tried to fool it into thinking it was IE7 (Using Atomic Browser).

    Googled and came up with this: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2453821

    Maybe iPad can't access secure site w/Proxy? Something I think would be fixed in iOS4 (since it was a problem for iPhones before iOS 4 as well). But I don't know for sure.

    Kind of surprised it can't handle this...

    IOS4 vs iPhone 3.x - Cannot establish a secure connection to the server


    iPhone with 3.x -> error
    iPad with 3.x -> error
    iPhone with IOS4 -> works :)

    ==> IOS4 on iPad should fix the issue

    Pre iOS 4 devices couldn't access secure site w/ proxy stuff.

    I'm running iOS 4.2 beta on my iPad and it is now able to access it. Hope this helps :) Not too much longer (well, another month or so) and iOS 4.2 will be out.
