Yes we are using the same certificate with OS Windows 7 Professional and Home Premium, but only with the Proffesional is working good, when try connect the Home Premium we have trouble with the authentiation.

Yes, but my doubt is if we need some upgrades for ACS or is not compatible with Windows 7 Home Premium or any restriction about this OS.

Because with the same certificate we are working good with others OS (winXP,Win 7 Professional)

Can you try this for me ... turn off "vaildate certificate" on the PC...  and then try it

We were investigated with specialist people of OS Windows and the conclusion was that the Home Premium Version has restrictions about authentication and domain (Active Directory). So we need change the version of OS (Proffessional for example).

If you had another tip, please tell me and I try it for resolve this issue, if not we have to change the OS.

Hey All,

Did anyone confirm if disabling " validate server cert" on Windows 7 home fixed this issue?
