    Wonder if anyone can help me get connected to RefWorks through Write-N-Cite. I'm getting a message that says "bad server certificate" and cannot connect.
    RefWorks is an online database that stores article and document citations for academic researchers in an online account. Write-N-Cite is software that allows you to manage that account on your computer. I'm connected wirelessly through my University's connection and everything else works (except my Thunderbird, any advice on that would be much appreciated also).
    Any advice? Can i authenticate the server certificate somewhere on my comp.?

    RefWorks problem again

    Just last night I received the same message on my MacBook running Tiger. The issue has nothing to do with a browser, but instead happens when running the Write-N-Cite standalone program.

    I also had a PC sitting next to me at the time, and that worked. Is this a known issue among RefWorks users?
