Do you have a proper certificate for the host, rooted in a well-known
service?  I suppose you do, but it's the first thing to check.  The
second is whether that root service is listed in your browser's list
of trusted roots.

Third, is this actually SSL and not TLS?  SSL is in fact considered
insecure by many experts; many libraries implementing these protocols
now refuse to use SSL (even v3), and some issue a warning if the
server forces it.
