Hi Graham,

Are you by any chance trying to connect to an eduroam network? If so, 
you may find the instructions at this Cambridge university website 
helpful: 
http://www.cam.ac.uk/cs/wireless/eduroam/configuring-ubuntu10.04.html

If so, the certificate you need is located in 
/etc/ssl/certs/AddTrust_External_Root.pem

This worked for me at Cambridge, but I'm not sure whether the same 
certificates are used at all universities with eduroam. Anyone know the 
answer to that?

Kind regards,

Tim *
