Will a letsencrypt ssl cert fix access to my server from wifi hotspot?

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:
hbuus.com
I ran this command:
N/A
It produced this output:
N/A
My web server is (include version):
apache 2.4.25
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
debian stretch
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
N/A
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
yes
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
no

I have a personal web server I use to access, among other things, email. I have been using a self signed certificate for years, but I’m thinking about changing that, because I’ve been having trouble getting to my web server when I’m using a wifi hotsopt, for example. In particular, I can’t check my email when I’m at the hospital because the 4g lte signal is weak and when I use their hotspot, they seem to have some security software that blocks access to all but my web server’s home page. When I try, I get an error page (I need to capture the details) that suggests I google the terms: UserCheck Portal Main, and even include a link for that purpose:
https://www.google.com/search?q=UserCheck%20Portal%20Main
The first link takes me to this web page:
https://sc1.checkpoint.com/documents/R76/CP_R76_AppControl_WebAdmin/83287.htm
which might help the hospita’s IT staff, but doesn’t help me.

Is anyone familiar with checkpoint.com?

Will a trusted ssl certificate allow me to access my web server when I need to use a hotspot protected by something like software from checkpoint.com?

Hi @faginbagin

it’s impossible to answer that question. The admins of checkpoint.com may know the answer.

So create a certificate, install it. Then check it again.
