Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've been getting the following error when trying to access a site on my web server: Error message: HTTP 403.13 Forbidden: client certificate revoked

So I took a look around and went to server in question. Went to start->run->mmc and opened up a console root. Went to Certificates->Personal and inspected the Certificate. Next I went to the CRL Distribution Point and copied the URL and tried to open it in IE but I get the aforementioned error.

If I perform nslookup myServersDC I get the server/address If I perform nslookup I get myServersDC

I've looked in my hosts file and it has myServersDC

Any ideas on what to do? Seems because the web server can't access the CRL Dist point it all goes to heck.

Basically works but http://myServersDC/restOftheURL/foobar.crl does not

So the web site is configured to require client certificates? Is that intended? –  joeqwerty Nov 29 '12 at 21:12
Yes, it is. That's the requirement –  PSU_Kardi Nov 30 '12 at 13:57
