Do you trust this certificate (yes/no)?

Hi @lvalverde94-ac226d30 , Can you elaborate the scenario?.
The lab machines mostly be using self signed certificate. Did you get this error while doing your PTS lab and trying to access a lab webserver @ In that case, it’s ok to trust the certificate.

Hi @jaa Thank you for reaching me out.

I’m in the Data Exfiltration lab in which a RDP connection to is required, but when I tried to established it I faced the certificate issue error and when I hit the y key to trust it the error message just keeps popping up

Did it throw any error code/messages? It could be better if provide a screenshot.

Some prompts require complete statements ‘yes’ instead of just ‘y’. Maybe That could be the issue.


@parzival Thank you very much, the complete statement was the issue. I didn’t know that about it.
