I have a site in my internal network that has a valid certificate for it's external hostname ( But when I access it from my LAN I use it's IP address to connect to it and Chrome emits a warning due to the fact the hostname is different than the one used in the certificate. How can I disable this warning for this site or, preferentially for my whole LAN?

acces your site via the external name. for this you have to adjust your dns-resolver to provide the internal ip of your since you are a great admin you are able to achieve this :)

(to answer that 2nd part seriously you would have to provide more information about your network-topology or you could search

I'm not in control of the network, unfortunately (I share infrastructure with a few other companies). My external DNS resolves for another computer that does the port forwarding. I could start running a DNS server, though. – Vitor Py Nov 3 '10 at 13:06
for your own machine you could also go the short-route and set an entry to your /etc/hosts or the windows equivalent C:\system32\drivers\etc\hosts .. look – akira Nov 3 '10 at 13:33
