What’s the exact error message from FF - perhaps you could post a screenshot?
I obviously can’t test using the hardware you have, but using FF (104.0.1) I’m able to connect to the admin pages of a Samsung Printer or of my Router/Cable Modem by using their respective IP addresses.
But you did not show anything. Not what you entered in the addressbar, Not what FF says as a result.
Only "This no longer works ". I slight variation on the infamous “It does not work”. Something even a car repair shop can do nothing with.
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to 192.168.169.132. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.
Always good for a laugh!
I have tried using Chromium and I get a slightly different message:-
this site can’t be reached**192.168.169.132** refused to connect.Try:
- Checking the connection
- [Checking the proxy and the firewall](https://forums.opensuse.org/chrome-error://chromewebdata/#buttons)
The Details page suggest I check firewall. At present I do not have any specific ports opened and am allowing http, https and nfs only.
What have I missed if this is the issue.
Although the question comes to mind, as I assume this had been working, what has changed since then and now, or is it a case of seldom used and you’re unable to be specific about when it stopped working.
Are you sure you entered that exact code and not “https://”?
I’m asking because sometimes I have got a similar error message and my workaround (when sure it was safe) was to only use http not https.
In FF you may check in the security settings if you have “https-only” enabled. If yes, switch it off and try again with “http”.
Hi and thanks for this. Unfortunately I am still discovering security hurdles including the automatic adding of the “s” in http://. On laptop using TW and Firefox has been upgraded to v104. There are several significant changes from the Leap 15.3 version and I am still working through these but no luck so far. No time to give details but will post when I have an answer. What is strange however is that I cannot get Chromium to work either so perhaps this also has changed since I last used it.
Assuming that you have FF set to “Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all windows” then you should be able to use the “Manage Exceptions…” button (shown in this screen shot https://paste.opensuse.org/view/raw/b02eaa1b - albeit greyed out there as I don’t have “HTTPS-Only Mode” enabled) to add the IP address of your UPS card.
On further investigation it seems that the UPS NIC is the problem. Another UPS worked without even needing to set any exceptions. Will swap NICs so I can work on the problem device.
Sods law that the UPS I needed to power cycle is the one that has the problem but that’s the fun of networking!!!
Many thanks again.
