You try to connect to a DirectAccess server by using One-Time Password Certificate Enrollment (OTPCE) protocol authentication through an HTTPS connection on a Windows RT 8.1 or Windows 8.1-based computer. In this situation, you encounter one of the following issues:

  • You receive an HTTP 403 error message from the DirectAccess server as a response to the certificate-signing request.

  • You receive a 0x80040001 error message after you enter the one-time password¬†(OTP).


This issue occurs when the client computer certificate is renewed. Before the client-side computer implements OTPCE protocol authentication, an error in the validation of the SSL certificate occurs. Therefore, the client computer keeps trying to use an expired cached certificate.
