Updated over a week ago

If you're reading this articles, big chance you're having issues connecting to your Seedbox client and that you are using BitDefender, a free popular anti-virus.

If that's the case, we're here for the rescue!

The problem lies in the fact that we're currently using self-signed certificate to protect the connection between your desktop and our servers, which is totally cool but sometimes cuasing conflicts in the antivirus space.
