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

Mike_B W/ Alumni Posts: 8 Security Scout



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 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

    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,

    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:
