    Not a real risk Hrvoje. Your browser is warning you because www.informix.com is not a full address to an actual web page but just a forwarding link to the equivalent ibm.com page. It is that forwarding that you are being warned about. As long as you trust the forwarding target, it is no risk. Just click on <Advanced> and click through to the Informix pages.

    Unless you are on a corporate network won't allow that option

    I know Art, certificate is for ibm.com and obviously they do not have enough money to pay certificate for informix.com :)

    But, maybe this is better than this:

    Hi Hrvoje,

    I use ibm.com/informix . Don't understand, that IBM redirects informix.com, not to the same place. Perhaps the IIUG can address this?

    Regards,

    Huh! But www.informix.com goes to the same place as ibm.com/informix which is the ibm.com/products/informix page. It's interesting the "informix.com" goes to the Cloud Pak home page!
