When is an SSL certificate not one? Problems linking to https from https site!

Morning all.

Installed a Turbo SSL certificate from godaddy.com on to my domain. Padlock there - thought it was job done.

I bought the SSL cert so that I could display Flash movies hosted at the domain name, on another site in the https environment (let's call this the Receiving site).

However when I link to the Flash movies at my now 'apparently' https-ed website, from the Receiving site, I still get the 'if you are happy to view a mixture of secure and insecure content, click Ok' warning box. This suggests to me that my site is not fully 'https-ed'.

Has anyone else had this experience, and found a way of getting round it?

Is it that the godaddy SSL certificate is not recognised by the Receiving site? Or is it something else.

Thanks for all your suggestions on this, friends!

the ssl cert is for www.domain1.com .. if you are crosslinking to www.domain2.com then of course its going to complain, i'm not sure if www.domain2.com has its own valid certificate then the error would go away, as you would be still going from one site to another. not sure if the SSL standard allows that or not.

Sounds like the second domain does not have a SSL cert.

I use Fiddler Tool whcih intercepts all HTTP requests from IE and can show you which are SSL and which are not to confirm which pieces are coming over non-encrypred.

The domain does have an SSL cert - it's godaddy.

It's all working ok, BUT: question. I have installed the certificate using the Plesk control panel on the server, but do I need to install the certificate anywhere else on the server too?
