There has been an issue with SSL certificates from “Letsencrypt” that is blocking ClearNode software updates. There is a 2 step fix described below.

Note there is no security issue, no data has been exposed and there is no risk to your privacy – this is simply the result of a certificate reaching its normal expiry.

Have your ClearNode or ClearRPT online, idle, disconnected from remote nodes and visible in your ClearNode mobile app. From the Node Details screen in the versions section:

  • First – tap on “Asterisk …” and then accept the upgrade offered in the popup
  • Be patient, do not interrupt power, wait for your ClearNode to reappear in the mobile app and settle down to idle
  • Second – tap on “RedNode API”, again accept the upgrade offered and wait for the process to complete
  • Your done !

This will replace the errant certificate in your AllStar image and then update your ClearNode code to eliminate the download errors.

Shout out to the good folks at for getting the certificate fixed – and a big fat raspberry to “Letsencrypt” for letting this happen … just kidding.

73 … Gerry.
