Missing Certificate with WebFolders4WHS

Problem:

A user remotely connecting to a Windows Home Server computer configured with WebFolders4WHS may receive the following error:

The folder you entered does not appear to be valid. Please choose another

or a dialog titled "Select the certificate you want to use" that allows the user to select from an empty list the certificate they want to use to secure the connection.

Cause:

This error is caused by when a user connects using a domain name other than their configured yourname.homeserver.com name that the server's certificate is configured for.

Solution:

Connect to the Home Server using the yourname.homeserver.com domain name instead of another one unless a certificate has been generated for that name as well.
