I can no longer access my Netscreen ns25 firewall.  Firefox and Chrome give error ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH. Nothing has changed on this firewall for years and now I can not access the GUI. Does anyone have a work around to restore the firewall or is it time to replace it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Your browser no longer accepts older versions of ssl certs. I use an older version of Firefox to get around this issue. You can also disable ssl for the webui via the command line.

I am a GUI guy. Can you help with the command to disable the web gui ssl for trust interface?
Sanga CollinsSystems AdminCommented:
Hi Avsc,

The command is:

unset admin http redirect

( i acutally found it on an old post I made on EE from 2010 :)


before you do that. please try installing IE-tab for chrome plugin from the plugins store:

This is a better option than disabling what little security you have.
