Description

The Spiceworks server responded with a protocol (SSL) error.

Possible Causes

The most common cause is that the Use SSL check box in the Spiceworks preferences isn't correctly set. 

Recommended Fix

Ensure that the server settings for SSL match those in the preferences.  Typically ports 443 and 9676 are used for SSL and ports 80 and 9675 are not.
