Me too! Me too!


I’ve been using 9092 from home for several days, and it started fine this morning, but now it’s objecting. 


I’m on a stable home network with a quality commercial firewall and no proxies.  Win 7

Checking the certificate[1] via a web browser says that the certificate for https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/StartupPage is valid 

I get the same results from a web browser as you, it is valid.




If the issue is a proxy problem as Mike pointed out, then I recall that you have to add -Dhttp.proxyHost=yourProxyURL to your JOSM arguments before you can change the proxy settings in your preferences.

That is correct, but if web traffic is being filtered I don't think there is anything that can be done within JOSM to fix the problem.  The problem for me in the past has been that the filter returned a response like "are you sure you want to go to xyz.com <http://xyz.com> ", which normally in a browser would be displayed and you would have an opportunity to say "yes", but JOSM didn't know what to do with that response, hence the error.  That isn't the problem for me today as I can go to josm.openstreetmap.de <http://josm.openstreetmap.de>  (and directly to its IP address) without a warning from a browser.
