Perform the following checks to resolve this issue:

  1. Telnet the at port 443.
  2. Open the browser and click Secure > Certificate and check whether the certificate is issued by USERTrust RSA or third party to *


  3. Review the firewall settings on the server in which Phoenix Agent is installed.
    The traffic to * must be excluded from the proxy or firewall server.
  4. Review the TCP packet using the Microsoft Network Monitoring tool.
  5. Make sure that the date and time of the server match the current time in that Timezone.

 Druva recommends to white list "*" for port 443 on the firewall.
