I was using Windows Live Writer offline blogging software when I received this error message. My log-in information is assigned to be encrypted because my WordPress settings force SSL on admin pages.
Nevertheless, my SSL certificate is not trusted since what I use is a self-signed certificate. How can I connect again to my blog?
Windows Live Writer
Can't connect to your blog service:
Network Connection Error – Error attempting to connect to blog at:
The underlying connection was closed: Could not establish trust
relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel.
Please try fixing the problem and then try again.
How do I change the trust settings?
Windows Live Writer offline blogging software – Error
If you have been able to use this offline blogging software successfully before, then you should try the following fixes:
Go to the Proxy settings and there set it to manual. After that you will need to add your blogging account after your name my blog name – you will need to do that even if you have a domain name – and then try connecting. That should fix the problem.
If you are still having this issue, try the following workaround:
First, you will need to get rid of the WordPress.com blog from Windows Live Writer and then add it again.
You will need to ensure that you have got enough space to upload images. You can verify that by checking from Media >> Media Library.
After that you should attempt publishing a post without images or just a few small images to see if it works.
