Hi Wireshark Experts,

As a new user to Wireshark, I was looking for some guidance on the following set of logs:

In these logs the following error is being thrown which is preventing a user from accessing one our server IPs when using TLS 1.0:

TLS V1 Record Layer: Alert (Level: Fatal, Description: Bad Certificate) Content Type: Alert (21) Version: TLS 1.0 (0x0301) Length: 2 Alert Message: Level: Fatal (2) Description: Bad Certificate (42)

Do the logs themselves give a clear indication of why this may be as I'm at a loss? We've doubled checked the certificates as I'm aware the error relates to: "The certificate was corrupt or contained signatures that could not be correctly verified. This alert can occur if the client certificate was signed by a different CA than the one specified in the SSL profile"

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Seems as though not all clients trust the authority of 'DigiCert SHA2 Secure Server CA'. You should check their trust store.
