Hi, I have a LinkStation Mini with 1.05 firmware. For web access to the LinkStation I use buffalonas.com with upnp. After I enter the name of the LinkStation, and before the login prompt, I always get a certificate warning. I am able to ignore the warning, and proceed with the login, so it's mostly an inconvenience to have the certificate problem.
The certificate is from Internet Widgits Pty Ltd. I looked at several other threads, and tried giving the LinkStation a static IP, disabled upnp, and opened up port 9000 on the router to the port on the LinkStation. Reinitialized the LinkStation and the router, and then tried logging in with the same results. Another post had indicated that this would somehow regnerate the LinkStation's certificate, but it didn't.
Internet Explorer flags this and says:

I still get the same security certificate error when accessing the LinkStation Mini from the internet using the buffalonas.com web site. As suggested in the reply:
However, when I browse to the buffalonas.com web site and specify the NAS server name, I still get the same security certificate warning as before. If I ignore the Internet Explorer 8 certificate error warning and log in, the address bar remains red, and if I click on the certificate icon on the address bar, a popup tells me that the CA Root certificate is not to be trusted, and if I click on View Certificates, a popup tells me that the certificate is issued by Internet Widgits PTY Ltd.
I can access the NAS just fine via the local network using the BUFFALO NAS Navigator2 application.
I know very little about certificates, and I have employees who routinely need to access the NAS from the internet. So I'm still stuck on trying to understand how to access a LinkStation Mini from the internet using the buffalonas.com website without getting a certificate error.
