RV042 giving out certificate instead of server


RV042 router is giving out the outer certificate  instead of server certificate. Outlook anywhere is failing and we are receiving certificate errors for any secure site behind this firewall.  I'm not talking  about remote  management. I'm talking about people trying to access our  web site,  which is secured, and getting an error because the RV042 is  giving its  own SSL certificate instead of the Server's certificate.  Firmware Version:  I don't see any updates for that  hardware.  I do have it working on an RV042 with the same firmware at a different location. 

How do we turn that off or keep it from happenning?

The fix that worked for me was to totally turn off https access to the router.  Remote access had not been emabled but internal was responding on 443.  Going to straight HTTP stopped it from responding to HTTPS requests.
