Hi there,

I am a complete beginner with Chimera so apologies for the very basic question. I am trying to open a Consurf output which is a .chimerax file. I have downloaded Chimera to do this and have not changed any default settings (running MacOS Monterey 12.2.1).

When I try to open the file (either by clicking “Open with Chimera” on the file or opening Chimera and going File > Open… and selecting the file), it comes up with the following error message:

Error reading consurf_1652376787.chimerax:
Couldn't find url 'https://consurf.tau.ac.il/results/1652376787/msa_file_fasta.aln.clustalw': [Errno socket error] [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:661)

I have no idea what this means or how to fix it, so would appreciate any tips!

Thank you,
Emma Belcher
