[Xymon] False SSL cert alerts

We are constantly having issues with sslcert alerts going non-green
eventhough it says the cert is fine.  Related to this is there being an
issue getting to the https page from the Xymon server yet I can access it
just fine from my browser.

The latest one is an http only check - no Xymon client. The host file shows:  https:quikfm.vcu.edu # testip https://quikfm.vcu.edu

Page is fully accessible.  sslcert page says:

 Mon Jun 26 06:06:48 2017

[image: green] SSL certificate for https://quikfm.vcu.edu/ expires in 315 days

Server certificate:
843059/street=701 W Broad Street/O=Virginia Commonwealth
University/OU=Business Applications support/CN=quikfm.vcu.edu
	start date: 2015-05-08 00:00:00 GMT
	expire date:2018-05-07 23:59:59 GMT
	key size:2048
	issuer:/C=US/ST=MI/L=Ann Arbor/O=Internet2/OU=InCommon/CN=InCommon
RSA Server CA

To make matters even more confusing, I flushed out all history and now the
sslcert info isn't there and it still says there is an SSL error.

How can I figure out why I get SSL ERROR ?

Any help would be appreciated in figuring this out.  Xymon server is at
