There is a known issue connecting to Fulcrum data shares from within the popular QGIS software, running on Windows operating systems. However, a setting change can be made to overcome the issue:

  • In QGIS, go to the Settings menu > Options > System

  • In the Environment section, add this variable: GDAL_HTTP_UNSAFESSL

  • And add this value: YES

  • Reboot QGIS

  • Try connecting to the data share again
