Cisco 3560 and error when accessing web admin page

Posted on 2011-03-25
Last Modified: 2012-06-21

I have a Cisco 3560 running c3560-advipservicesk9-mz.122-44.SE2.bin.  I have enabled the web server doing the following :

config t
ip http secure-server
ip http authentication local
do write mem

I can open the main page just fine.  But when I click on "Web Console - Manage the switch through the web interface."  I get a page cannot be displayed, going to homepage.htm.  Any ideas?  I actually tried to find this homepage file in the different volumes and could not seem to locate it.

Try the following: In your IE, go to Internet Options, Advanced and put a check next to Allow active content to run in files on My Computer.

Nice one, but it is already checked off due to policy push.

Could the same policy block switch's self-signed certificate when you access through https?

Not sure what you mean by same policy.  I login to the main https page just fine, it is when I click on the link for the web console (still https) that it fails.  I am curious about this homepage.htm.  Where is it?  How do I confirm that it exists ?

turns out the issue is, bin files do not have the html pages to show everything, you must get the tar version of the IOS.

I actually ended up contacting Cisco Tac in order to get this answer.
