Hi there!

I am using the LinkChecker to validate all links on our new company front 
end and I have come an SSL issue (well what I think is an SSL issue).  I 
have installed the link check software onto a local server and set the 
linkchecker to use proxy settings which are defined using mod_env.

When I do the linkcheck, I get Response 500 as seen below in the report:

What to do: This is a server side problem. Check the URI.
Response status code: 500
Response message: Can't connect to www.<URL>:443 (connect: No route to 
Line: 306

without issue.  I was curious, could this error be caused by the fact that 
the pages are SSL and that the certificate that is used for SSL is self 
signed by my company and not a recognised security authority?

If that is indeed the case, is there a way to pass through the CA 
Certificate that is installed in the browser so that the error does not 

Thanks in advance.
