|I receive Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR):SSL protocol error when I try to go to gmail or sign out.||porkiepinegirl||5/26/10 7:32 PM|
When I go on to my Google chrome or igoogle I can get on to my page, but if I try to go to gmail or to sign out to switch accounts I get the following error:
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR):SSL protocol error.
I do not know how to fix this. This is on my lap top and I do not know if it is on my wireless device.

I've been having the same problems for the past week. Sometimes I get that error, sometimes I don't. It's really getting annoying...

In case you haven't sorted this out yet porkiepinegirl it is a virus. Use Webroot Antivirus to find and kill it. I had the same problem. Error was associated with IE, Firefox and Chrome. I got it from Security Master AV off an infected website. Tried everything including repairing Windows but no joy. Webroot sorted it out.
Very, very, very disappointed with the lack of any help from Google. If you are listening guys you really failed here when you could have made a lot of friends and loyal customers. As it stands you have lost any goodwill I once had for you. Remember the most basic tenet of customer service: A customer who complains cares!
To all others who encounter this problem just use Webroot because Google don't give a flying #&%@ about customers!

I am making a correction to some of my previous information. In Google Chrome you can correct this problem using the following steps. In the upper right corner of your screen, select the wrench icon. Then, select "options." Select the "under the hood" tab. Under the bold title "Network," select "change proxy settings." The internet properties page will pop up and you can use the same steps as correcting MSIE above to correct Google Chrome. You might be able to do this by going through your control panel as well.

Can't thank you enough. This stupid error has been driving my wife and I nuts while trying to get into AKO. And no one has had an intelligent answer anywhere without having you download some extra antivirus program, etc. Figures it would take a SSG to solve this one.

It'll erase your passwords from your computer, don't do it if you're not sure, BUT it's the only thing that helped me ( I couldn't log into google email account, this error was driving me crazy):
In Google Chrome:
In the upper right corner of your screen, select the wrench icon. Then, select "options." Select the "under the hood" tab. Under the bold title "Network," select "change proxy settings." Then choose "advanced" tab, then click on " restore advanced settings" and "reset", then "apply", then "ok". Then restart your browser.
In Internet Explorer:
Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet Connections/Internet options/ Then choose "advanced" tab, then click on " restore advanced settings" and "reset", then "apply", then "ok". Then restart your browser.

I have tried all of the above solutions - marking SSL 2.0, marking TSL 1.0, restarting browser, etc, but it is still happening. Any other ideas? It is happening in IE/Chrome/Firefox.
|bryan00009||8/15/10 5:49 AM|
Yes, I can say almost without a doubt it is a spyware/malware virus problem.
Whenever I tried to visit any secure sign-in pages, especially my online Banking page, Internet Explorer would practically freeze up. Sometimes it would time out completely. I tried all sorts of things as suggested by Microsoft such as clearing your cache, internet history, reviewing your security settings, etc. I updated Java, Adobe Flash and installed IE 8. Still nothing. I installed Google Chrome browser only because it said it was faster. No change -- still couldn't get to secure sites -- although at least Chrome did point out the 107 error, which IE never mentions.
Then, of course, I thought of something more obvious -- a virus. After some searching, the only freeware virus remover that looked promising was SuperAntiSpyware. Reviews were mixed, but as a last resort I took a chance and believe it or not it found and REMOVED about 80-some spyware/malware virus objects.
Everything seems to be running perfectly now. I'll keep you informed if there's any more problems.

Had to diagnose this for a client earlier today on a Windows XP box; found out her issue (regarding the "Error 107 - ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR") was a "hosts" file that had a few malware-related entries in it. It made it so that she couldn't connect to Gmail through any browser because that entry was pointing at the wrong IP. To check if this is the case for you, click the start button, then Run (or Windows-Key and the letter "R" if you're shortcut-inclined). At the run dialog, type "%windir%\system32\drivers\etc" (without the quotes) and then Enter to get to the directory where the "hosts" file resides. Backup this file somewhere first just in case your modification causes issues. Then, once you've backed it up, open it (in Notepad or something similar); you should only usually see "127.0.0.1 localhost" as the final entry; if there are more entries after this one, delete them (but keeping the 127.0.0.1 localhost entry as the only one), save and close out of the modified file, then reboot. You might find your SSL problem is cured. A malware scan with something like Malewarebytes or Spybot would probably be in order, as well.

Click on the wrench -> options -> Change proxy Settings -> Content. Under Certificates, click clear SSL state.
|mike503||9/21/10 11:49 AM|
I used the TLS 1.0 thing - not sure if it helped or not, but the "Clear SSL state" (in MSIE 6.0!) fixed it.
|vancar6||9/23/10 2:30 AM|
I have the same problem too.
I need to login to a very important online service and i can't access it.
|micahd11||10/13/10 3:33 PM|
I think they are repairing stuff
|Russ Cobbe||11/16/10 2:03 PM|
None of the things people have mentioned are the real cause of this issue. All they do is change the cache info on the browser and it will work for some people some of the time. Its not likely a virus, its not a browser bug.
The real cause is a server side setup issue. There is an IP address missing from being assigned to the SSL certificate on the server so when a browser is given one of the valid server IP's that isn't also a valid SSL IP you get this error. If when you do any of the suggestions given here it clears that ( the clear SSL state will do it) IP address and you try it again and get a new but valid IP combination and voila it works. It could very easily stop working for you if you clear the SSL state again.
So only Google server guys can properly fix this issue and retrying after clearing the ssl state each time will eventually get it working for an individual user.

Thanks to SSG Gould for this fix so I can use AKO! I should have known better being a 25U lol
|saurus||12/1/10 3:17 PM|
Thank you very much SSG Gould
|LTCVAN21||12/17/10 5:46 PM|
SSG Gould your a genuis! Fixed it in 15 seconds, been bugging me for a week. should have googled it earlier. Thanks!!
|shonnsasser||12/20/10 10:18 PM|
Russ Cobbe is on the right track but not quite. SSG Gould is not a genius trust me. The problem is most likely caused by a virus or malware. Please see my post on another thread it will help guide you in a more helpful direction.
|Tenderloin897||12/28/10 10:13 PM|
SSGould above was spot on, opened up IE selected Internet options, Advanced, then scrolled down, the box for 1.0 & 3.0 were checked but the 2.0 was not. So I checked the box and amazingly enough it worked. Thank you!!! I did not loose any saved passwords either, awesome info, & ty again!
|RP007||12/30/10 11:38 AM|
Thanks SSG Gould... it worked !
|PieterVdW||1/20/11 12:43 AM|
I had the same problem after the system was infected with Personal Security Sentinel. After removing it with Spyware removal tool and registery cleaner I got the 107 error when using Gmail. But not only in chrome, also IE was not working. . Checking the SSL and TLS did not help. Cleaning up the host file did the trick (although this was not easy in Vista). Thanks a lot akula73!
|computer iliterate||1/22/11 2:35 PM|
SSG U R THE MAN!!!! i am actually military and couldn't get into AKO because of this stupid error. so thx :)
|waagnerm||1/25/11 4:39 AM|
in Google Chrome,
click on the wrench in the upper right-hand corner.
scroll down to tools,
click, "clear browsing data"
*** Check "empty the cache" ***
You can check or uncheck the other options as desired.
Select: Clear data from this period: "Everything"
select "Clear Browsing Data" near the bottom.
and you're Done!

Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR)
Orkut And Gmail Is Not Opening Other Sites Are Opening
This problem occurs due to the hacking of hosts file
There's a solution for it:
First check that in :
1) Internet Explorer- go to "tools/internet options/advanced" in the settings box, scroll all the way to the bottom and select "Use TLS 1.0" and it will fix the problem.
SSL 2.0 or 3.0 and these are should also be selected.
2) Google Chrome-Click "wrench" sign on the tope right of it.Click "Options" then "Under the bonnet" in network click "Change Proxy Settings" and follow hte steps above as in Internet Explorer.
IF THIS DID NOT WORK THEN DO THIS
STEP-1: Unhide all the files and folders.
STEP-2: Then,go to,, C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts.
Step-3: Right click on hosts file,then click properties.
Then click security tab. After that click edit.
STEP-4: Here,click system and you have to check on allow full control and uncheck deny.
STEP-5: Click OK and then OK.
STEP-5: Now delete the hosts file.
AND ENJOY GMAIL AND ORKUT
|wimwok||2/24/11 2:56 PM|
Click the wrench button on the top right > Options > Under The Hood > scroll all the way down to the bottom and check TLS 1.0. Also make sure All 4 other boxes are checked. Restart Chrome and it's fixed.

HEY. i am having an issues with my google chrome as i w2ant to open a page but it is giving me a SSL error of net-connection-timed out.
can some 1 pls help me
|The GradyWorks||4/2/11 5:24 PM|
A client developed this problem several weeks ago. She ran Malwarebytes to remove the virus/malware, but could not access gmail. Thanks to Yogesh1007, I was able to track it down to the hacked HOSTS file. I unhid the file, made a copy of it, then used Malwarebytes to kill the original HOSTS file. Renamed the copy back to hosts and edited it. There were a number of entries redirecting google, yahoo and bing to a different IP. Deleted those entries and saved the file. This cleaned up the problem. Be aware that by having your traffic redirected, passwords, credit card numbers and other information could have been compromised.

I really don't know what's going on with Google and their gmail. Since the last 2-3 builds I have been having nothing but problems and issues, first the flash attachment feature, now error 107 and ssl. This is getting to be a royal pain to get logged out from your account none the less sending attachments.
As anyone discovered a fix that works? I've tried all of the above and I can't get the error 107 issue resolved. The issue seems to be random.
Any advice is appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
|SergeantRick||5/7/11 3:13 AM|
I have been experiencing this same problem. I tried around two dozen(!) different solutions for this problem, none of them working.
I stumbled upon a fix minutes ago. I think Russ Cobbe has it right, at least for some cases. This fix is for XP, so if you have vista or 7, you might have to find this on your own.
Go to Control Panel
Go to Security Center
Go to Internet Options
Click the 'Content' tab
Click 'Clear SSL state'
Try logging in again. This worked for me. Good Luck!
|skygurl||5/9/11 7:15 PM|
Hey all, and Sergeant Rick,
I am glad to hear this worked out for you. I did exactly that with no luck still. Now, I am getting the error 107 when I am trying to log into my gmail account as well.
Honestly, I think it might be an issue on the Google server side. I don't get it, as I too have tried most all of so many solutions none of which work. I think I might try a clean install of Chrome. The funny thing is gmail and all functionality works great with ie9 but not with Chrome.

Fact is, if you get this error in the first place then the web designer/developer has not created the site to the correct standards:

Trying to fix this problem I noticed a little email icon next to the wrench in chrome. After removing this extension from chrome all the browsers started working again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The icon said send link with chrome.
|skygurl||7/31/11 3:16 PM|
Could you please give us more detail as to where this little email icon next to the wrench in Chrome is and how one can remove this extension so we can see if this might work for us.
|ainun||10/4/11 2:03 AM|
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol errorthis can be your SSL port is not allow to trought firewall or router.
do you have a proxy? if you have , please check your firewall not to redirect your SSL in proxy transparent because SSL cannot trought in proxy transparent.

Hello again. I recently purchased Prevx 3.0, and, after clearing my computer of viruses, with no luck, I asked for Remote Assistance, which the did. After maybe 5 minutes of work (involving clearing entries from the hidden HOSTS file), the problem was completely resolved. If you feel comfortable doing that, try it. If not, Prevx 3.0 is marvelous and will give you your money back if it doesn't work.

You should contact Facebook about a problem with Facebook. Reason: Gmail (where you posted) has NOTHING to do with Facebook.

For me it is many sites I usually could go to. This started Sunday last week.
Error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR): SSL protocol error.
gmail and many other https:// servers.
SSL connection Error
carbonite is having issues... Works just fine in IE and Firefox. I miss my Chrome :(
|Rodneymh||12/4/12 3:39 PM|
P.S I have done all of the ssl 2.0, 1.2 etc .. does not help. I did not try deleting the host file , but that seems like not a good idea.
Why change it and then delete it? Makes no sense.

I found out WHY it is not working. It was my antivirus program! They fixed it the other day, but on there site they say how they were having issues with it! glad that nightmare is over! Had absolutely nothing to do with ssl 2.0,1.2 etc.
|KenU-HelpMe||12/22/12 7:52 AM|
@bikibo was it a specific antivirus program? i haven't had any changes to my antivirus. did you do anything to fix it yourself?
|Rodneymh||12/22/12 3:44 PM|
It was Eset. They were my last resort to contact and when I did they told me they were aware of the issue and were working on a fix. My wife's pc worked 2 weeks before mine and she had the same issue. That is when I realized what was going on. YOu can turn it off in the advanced settings/web and email/protocol filtering/SSL I think was where you can turn it off, however it leaves you vulnerable. So I just waited and checked it daily and it starting working again.
