Server 2008 R2. Internet Explorer Enhanced Security is blocking access to FSecure Web Console

Hi

 

I have found today that I am unable to get a connection to the FSecure Web Console on several of our servers.

The web console is configured to be accessible by browsing to 127.0.0.1 on port 25023 which I believe is the standard setup.

I discovered this issue on one of our servers yesterday and have since found it on four of our other servers. These are all running Server 2008R2

I'm able to Ping our Policy Manager from this server. I have made sure that this address is in Trusted Sites on Internet Options. So I can't work out why I can't connect to the Web Console.

 

So far this seems to be happening on Servers running Windows Server 2008 R2. I've just checked a server which is on Server 2012 and it's fine.

 

Has anyone experienced this issue and can advise what I can do? Thanks

    I've just tried the  Fsecure Web User Interface 1.50 Hotfix 100  on one of the affected servers and it has worked!

     

    Thanks a million I've been scratching my head over this for days.

     

    I have inadvertently marked this post as solution and can't see how to take it off, sorry.

    Hello Mike_B,

     

    If you do not want to disable Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration on your servers, you can use following workarounds:

    1. Install one more browser on affected server(s) (FF, Chrome);

    2. Connect to server WebUI from other host (you will need to configure access for that).

     

    Best regards,

    Vad

    Hello,

     

    This could be possibly related to the self-signed nature of the FSecure Web Console's HTTPS page? Last autumn there was a MS update that eliminated weak (512/1024 bit?) digital signature acceptance.

     

    On F-Secure's Webclub site you could find hotfixes made for that problem for the FSAV (E)SS 11.01 products. See here:
