I am trying to download the free trial version of PGP's security software.

When I click "Accept" after the software license agreement, it tries to redirect me to a secure site (to enter personal information and initiate the download I presume). But I never get there because apparently that site has an invalid security certificate.

I tried switching browsers.
Results are the same whether I use IE or Firefox.

I checked the time on my computer's clock.
The time on my computer clock is correct.

Can anyone think of anything else I might try?

Can someone else try to go to the download page to try to duplicate the results?

Here is the direct link:
http://www.pgp.com/downloads/desktoptrial/desktoptrial2.html

If you prefer to browse to it yourself, go to the main PGP page (pgp.com). Click on the link at the bottom of the screen that says "Evaluation Software"
Then click on the third choice:
PGP Desktop Trial Software (Desktop Client Only)

If anyone else can duplicate the security certificate error, then I'll know it's their problem, not mine.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I can get to the download page using Opera 9.63 but get what I assume to be the same message as you;

"You tried to access the address https://woext.pgp.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Trial.woa?accept=on, which is currently unavailable. Please make sure that the Web address (URL) is correctly spelled and punctuated, then try reloading the page.

Secure connection: fatal error (45)

https://woext.pgp.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Trial.woa?accept=on

The certificate has expired.

Make sure your Internet connection is active and check whether other applications that rely on the same connection are working."

Not too good for an organisation that markets security!!
