When am trying to authenticate via VS CODE integrated cmd pallets, I get below error

Could not retrieve the username after successful auth code exchange.reason: unable to get local issuer certificate

However, when I use SFDX CLI I am able to authenticate, the strange thing is I can authenticate to many other orgs using same VSCODE but not able to authenticate that specific ORG/Instance. . enabled API check box is checked. Environment variable is set to NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED =0

any help is much appreciated Thanks.

there may be a chance of IP restriction. sometimes organizations whitelist the IP Space (CIDR) to avoid unauthorized access. I also suspect access controls is in place for certain instances/orgs. its to better to check with the salesforce system administrator once
