Windows 7 Security Alert when connecting to Grossmont or Cuyamaca
Wireless

If you try to connect to our wireless system with Windows 7, you may get a security alert:

“The connection attempt could not be completed”
“The Credentials provided by the server could not be validated. We recommend that you terminate the connection and contact your administrator with the information provided in the details. You may still connect but doing so exposes you to security risk by a possible rogue server.”

Windows 7 security alert message

The security alert lets you know that the server you are connecting to may not be a trusted source. You can connect to the wireless network by confirming that you are connecting to a Grossmont or Cuyamaca server and trusting the AddTrust security certificate. To do this:

Click on the ‘Details’ down arrow on the security alert screen.

Check that the Radius Server matches one of the following:
For Grossmont College: either G18.gcccd.edu or G23.gcccd.edu
For Cuyamaca College: either C24.gcccd.edu or C25.gcccd.edu

If so, then you can safely click the Connect button and use the Grossmont or Cuyamaca wireless network.

If the Radius Server does not match one of the Grossmont or Cuyamaca servers, click the Terminate button and contact the GCCCD Information Systems Help Desk at 619-644-7547.
