Unfortunately, I still see this annoying orange triangle with the exclamation mark.  The Firefox on Windows 10 is unforgiving...

I will wait either for the completion of the migration to another server or for the Edge browser to be chromium-based.

We are fully aware of that issue.

Unfortunately, getting it solves involves more than just obtaining a fixed IP address. Hopefully we will move NG to an updated server later, in December, that should improve our encryption ability to TLS 1.2.

interestingly my Chrome on Android is perfectly happy with your Configiration.

No, not perfectly: the site certificate makes it, but Transport Layer Security 1.0 not

Firefox on Windows 10 is very unhappy still

Firefox will complain until mid December at least :)

What we needed to get rid off, as soon as possible, was the security warning preventing people from accessing the site.

You might have stuff in the browser cache, *or* earlier made an exception for the site certificate. If the latter, clear it and you're back in business. For the former, flush out the cache and try again.

I did test Chromium with NG on various Windows and Linux boxes and all went well.

I still cannot access the site using Safari on my iMac.  I can using Firefox.  And I can using Safari on my MacBook Pro.

Both devices are running Catalina and are up to date.

On the iMac I get the same message as golunvolo.

I have cleared caches, cookies and history, shut down, restarted, several times.

I made an exception for the site certificate when the https problem arose earlier, but I do not know how to remove the exception.  None of the certificates in my Keychain seems relevant.

Assistance would be appreciated.

Have you tried using the new IP address (162.210.51.81) ?

Thanks, I did not know of this and just tried it.  Unfortunately I had the same result as before (the one reported by golunvolo).

It is very strange that one of my computers has no problem and the other does.

 Hi there,

 Hi again

   Still having problems with the access to the site with both Chrome and Firefox. Only the private browser “Tor” allows the access. I have erase the previous certificate but it
  either shows now the site on the attached image or the “404 Not Found” message when using the new ip address: 162.210.51.81
   Any other ideas?


  Thanks for your help

Why use IP address?
To read new messages I just link to https://nikongear.net/revival/index.php?action=unread, and it is working without a hitch in Chrome on Win7 (black padlock as always). https://nikongear.net works too of course.

My issue on one PC was caused by this 'old' hack  ::)
If you made changes last time we had issues in 2016, you might want to remove or replace these,,,
Windows
 
You will need to edit this file with Notepad:
 
c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
 
First change the rights to edit the file by right clicking on it and set the security to allow all access.
 
If these two lines are at the bottom of the file delete them and save the file.
 
162.210.51.116 nikongear.net
162.210.51.116 www.nikongear.net
 
From the command line type this and hit Enter:
 ipconfig/flushdns
Or reboot

It works fine on my MacBook Pro on Safari.
