SSL Green Padlock in FM14 Mac but not Windows

Now that the most recent patch has come out for FMS14 I have my custom SSL cert installed.  However, things are not all roses.  In the Mac client I get a green padlock and Web Direct is showing the secure connection and the correct SSL cert information.  Windows FMPA14 isn't showing a green lock icon.  Get ( ConnectionAttributes )on both Mac and Windows shows:

 

[ Peer Certificate ]

commonName: {mydomain}

CA Issuers: Go Daddy Secure Certificate Authority - G2

 

Get ( ConnectionState ) on the Mac returns a 3 (for a secured connection with a fully verified server name in the certificate) and a 2 for a secured connection (SSL) when the server name doesn’t match the certificate (default FileMaker Server installation).


Not sure how connecting to the same server and opening the same database should cause two different results.


Any thoughts?
