    For the last few days I'm unable to upload photos the way I always do through "manage attachments".

    I can add files, but when I click on upload files a red warning sign appears behind the file name and I can't upload. The error code given is 407 ("error #2038").

    The photos I'm trying to upload are all within the parameters that are set and there are about 100 photos in my folder.

    What is wrong or I'm doing wrong? Never had this issue before.

    Have you tried doing it using the icon in the message box? I can't upload them from work but that always works for me when at home

    The 407 error is an authentication error that occurs when you are using a VPN connection or proxy server. Your server is asking the Message Board to prove it is real and we do not yet have the SSL support built in to the server. This is a recent requirement from some ISP's who may be over reacting to recent hack attacks.

    We are working to convert all the NAWCC sites to secure sockets so that you will use https instead of http to reach the site. When it is in place, http requests will automatically be changed to https requests.

    I have only started working on this, so I may not have the right answer yet.
