Hi,

Hope you are doing well.

In general, if a certificate is self-signed, the issuing CA will be unknown and therefore, by definition, untrusted.

If the server certificate isn't self-signed, but the issuing CA is unknown, it will always be untrusted since it has to be known in order to be trusted. 

 

You can gather a packet capture in MWG while reproducing the issue as per below steps and check what is certificate it receives for this traffic:-

 

MWG UI: (Troubleshooting > Packet Tracing)

Add these command line parameters:

-s 0 -i any host 52.179.86.104

 

Start Capture.

 

Reproduce Problem 

 

Stop Capture.
