OSX Mountain Lion App store vs MWG

At my client, there is a small smattering of Special Egg Mac users.   Unfortunately, they are reporting that the App Store for updates is ... not working through the MWG's. 


Any tips or experiences appreciated. 


I'm seeing some barking about and its SSL cert not matching.  Which is odd because from another IP address/computer/version of curl,  curl claims the altname of the cert matches   ... but from my proxy command line, curl -visk   only sees a CN of * which of course... doesn't match.    openssl s_client | openssl x509 -txt      seems to be consistent across all the ip's and OS's I tested from, and all seem to be quite sure that the SSL cert is CN's and alt subject'd for *   and not 


Curious if others see issues with 's ssl cert, and/or know how if at all it figures in with this issue preventing Mountain Lion machines from pulling OS updates.   Does apple have this goofed up and is MWG doing the right thing with it?   Is it safe/necessary to pull this one into the cert whitelist?


Thanks in advance for any shared fun wtih Apple OS X.

    Re: OSX Mountain Lion can't get updates via MWG?

    Hi Regis,


    It also appears that the app store Mountain Lion doesn't play well with chunk encoding. Have you tried adding the proxy control to your whitelists?
