HTTPS access to Astraweb Members area

Postby batclark » Thu Jan 12, 2017 1:06 pm

Hopefully, I'm posting to the right section of the forums on this. I'm wondering why there is no secure web page for Astraweb or the members area ? I sent them a ticket on this, and they responded with "https://www.news.astraweb.com/members_v2.cgi", which doesn't seem to work until the "news" is removed from the URL ("https://www.astraweb.com/members_v2.cgi")......that URL allows login, but results in errors ("Error! Session expired. Please Login again.") when accessing the "change password", "add a group", or "billing history" links in the user panel.

Other providers all seem to have secure HTTPS access to their sites by default.....any thoughts ? Am I being spoofed ?

I don't believe Astraweb is monitoring this forum anymore. You would think they would use https for a login screen, I agree. I doubt you are being spoofed but your login credentials are going in the clear.
