If you are behind a corporate firewall and trying to access https sites using Google chrome, you are most likely to face “SSL connection error”. As of this build of chrome (6.0.472.63) the problem still persists.
The workaround as suggested by few forums is to open chrome from command line using the following argument
user ashok has a another fix for this from comments section
just correct the date and time setting .. ssl error will be resolved … try it
In the settings of Chrome, click on Change Proxy Settings button, then go on the content tab. There you will find a button of clear SSL state. Press it, it clears the SSl state and you can reload the stuff u want to browse.
Possibly happens to me here in Linux (and Chromium) because I forced the use of Chromium despite having the correct libstdc++:
libstdc++6:i386 (5.3.1-7ubuntu1) breaks chromium-browser (<= 43.0.2357.130-0ubuntu2) and is installed.
However, I won't downgrade libstdc++ just because I need Chromium 34. (Chromium 36+ needs SSE2 instruction set, which my old CPU does not provide!)
My date and time is correct, despite of that i am getting this SSL error.
even i tried through cmd but its not working.
Sumit, that worked. Everything above your post is a failure. Chrome, java and corporate server/firewall do not get along at all. Disabled java and SSL Error went away. Thanks!
I hv sol. with a drawback,
in chrome go to setting/advance setting/content setting/do not allow java script. 🙂
it will result in the sites having nothing content without java script will not response in that case you can use mobile optimised site using “m.” in url just before actual url….
lately i have been getting an ssl error that says, cannot connect to the real http://www.pinterest.com
something is currently interfering with your secure connection to http://www.pinterest.com

I’ve been getting this when I try to get to gmail, MyUB, and other sites via Chrome, Firefox, and Safari on a desktop mac.
‘SSL connection error
Unable to make a secure connection to the server. This may be a problem with the server, or it may be requiring a client authentication certificate that you don’t have.
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error.’
Is this the same thing? What can I do? Is it a virus? I’ve got multiple accounts on my computer, and this doesn’t happen in the other browsers in other accounts. Parental controls are also enabled for this account, blocking websites the firewall doesn’t. So I’m not sure what is going on, only that it’s annoying.
Also, I forgot to mention that I deleted the profile on Chrome a bit ago, and reset Safari. Neither did anything.
Something else to add- the other account on this computer that isn’t mine with parental controls does the same thing in Safari when I try to get to gmail. Admin account doesn’t do this.
I think it is the parental controls, maybe they are set to send the information the page to someone and so it isn’t secure which causes it to not do it?
Help! how do we unblock K9 protection if we don’t have the password? 🙂 Thank you, need it badly.
عايزه اشغل الفيس بوك وتويتر بتاعى مش عارفه
أنا آسف لم أفهم مشكلتك
Its not working.
Are you behind a corporate wall? Have you tried the same website via IE or firefox ?
WTH. I changed ISP. Now all HTTPS sites give me “SSL ERROR”.
Does it have to do with the new ISP? Or just GoogleChrome’s fault?
I tried Mozilla and IE. Same issue “SSL ERROR”.
It does the same to me… When I want to go on to tumblr, gmail, twitter, sometimes facebook, sometimes google…. I tried a proxy but it does the same… ERG……. DX
Can you help me. I don’t know how to do this. In fact I don’t know what a computer is.
I have something shiny here and when I put bread in it, it makes it into toast. Is this my computer? When I push down the lever, will that open the command prompt?
How do you do this again? When I type cmd in the start menu, just the black box pops-out.. What should I type there then? & Is this 100% safe?
First of all you will have to find out the installation directory of chrome, it will be under c:\Program Files. Copy this path and open cmd.exe
In the “black box”, you would have to type the following
if you do an dir chrome.exe you should find it there
next type chrome.exe –allow-ssl-mitm-proxies
Its not working..
for execute chrome you must type chrome.exe
but you type chrom.exe
it is LOL!
Aah , thanks! will correct that 🙂
arrey yar what is this ssl certificate error?? past one week iam unable to check my mail in gmail. please help
If you are in Windows open cmd.exe and proceed to the directory of chrome installation. From there type chrome –allow-ssl-mitm-proxies to launch chrome.
