Welcome Back Clock Settings Errors!

Yay. :|

Once upon a time (hmm. 1.5, anyone?) every time it was busy I would get an error message that said my CLOCK SETTINGS WERE WRONG - which in and of itself is the most nonsensical error message I have ever heard of.

I'd just like to welcome that stupid error back again.

Anyone out there wanna tell me what's going on? Please?

Hey Nikki -- it's an erroneous message. You *don't* have to change your clock settings. I'm not sure why this message comes up, but when it has for me in the past, I ignore it and just keep persisting in relogging. :)

This message means that the secure authentication part of your login has failed. There are two typical causes for this:

1) Your time and date are incorrect, and thus our certificate appears to be expired or invalid.
2) A firewall or internet security software is blocking the network port for secure authentication.

If you're using any internet security software, you may need to reconfigure it, since 1.6 has changed the name of the Second Life executable and your internet security settings for SL have been reset.

Thanks Lee for the clarification -- I'll add though that there have been several times when I've freshly synchronized my clock, and all Internet security has been disabled, and I *still* got that message. Like, right now. :) On the next try I bet it'll say that the login failed but I won't get the specific clock error message... oh, here it is. :)

Despite our best efforts, something unexpected has gone wrong.

Could it be attributable to the heavy load? Stuff being so under pressure that somehow the SL servers think that the login is "out of sync"?

Nothing wrong here.

I got the clock error myself just now.
A) clock has not changed and is up to date.
B) I run naked...no firewall or antivirus software.
C) I do run a router but it's wide open as well.

Also getting another erro in place of the clock one sometimes.

I believe the observation Nikki made is holding true that it might be related to the mass login as it appears the other error is the "something has gone wrong" issue.

Heh. Ok, maybe I was a little frustrated and stating that it was the most nonsensical error ever was a little rash. ;) Also, would like to say that I've managed to get in... so I guess it was just the bottlenecking going on.

But - I did configure my firewall to allow secondlife.exe as soon as I saw the change after installation, and, my clock was synched earlier this afternoon. So, still seems strange that I got that error.

Oh well. I'm in - you can't pay me enough to log out - and thank you! :D

The message doesn't say "your clock is wrong."
Rather, it says, "Unable to establish a secure connection to the login server. Often this means that your computer's clock is set incorrectly. Please go to Control Panels and make sure the time and date are set correctly. If you continue to receive this error, please go to the Support section of the SecondLife.com web site and report the problem."

See the difference? "Often this means", not "It's definitely because of"? :)

And I never at any point said that it meant "it's definitely because of." :| And pardon me for not having the error message memorized verbatim just yet.

Sorry, I didn't see your response above mine. And I don't have it memorized -- I changed my clock to get it. That's why I took a while to post, because I was having login problems like everyone else tonight.

Ok. :) Sorry.

I'm not having the world's best day (and it's nothing to do with SL, although the login issues certainly didn't make me feel BETTER lol) and if I was a bit defensive my apologies. :)
