I use a web browser (internet explorer) to access a https-webserver. The database is started with a certificate (created with createcert.exe). i added the certificate as ‘trusted certificate’ in Internet options.

Url = https://ip-adres:port/webservice?action=test&certificate -----BEGIN CERTIFICATE--…

I get this warning : ‘There is a problem with the website’s security certificate’ When I click on ‘Continue to this website (not recommended)’, I get the correct results.

What is the correct syntax for my url ?

Your certificate is probably okay. You will get that from your browser whenever you go to a web site whose certificate has not been signed by a trusted authority (e.g. VeriSign). I'm assuming that you created a self-signed certificate with createcert. If you want this warning to go away, you will have to get your certificate signed.

... you will have to get your certificate signed.

Or you might add the certificate of the CA (or of its root authority) - which may be the same certificate as the one you are using for a self-signed certificate - to your browser's list of trusted CAs.
