Browser Print SSL settings are getting lost in every 3-4 day in Chrome.

Hi,

 

We are facing an issue with Browser print SSL Certificate on Chrome browser whereby after every 3-4 days of configuring the plugin and accepting the certificate on my machine, it stops detecting the printers.

 

Steps I have to follow to make it work again are as follows:

  • Clear browser cookies and cache
  • Access the URL https://localhost:9101/ssl_support in the browser and follow the the required steps to accept the certificate.
  • once the certificate is accepted,Navigate to the website and it works fine.

 

Please suggest if i need to change some settings to make it work permanently without accepting the certificate again and again.

 

Note: the plugin in the system tray shows all the printers attached to my machine.

Hi there,

we are facing the same issue!

The latest thing we tried was to save the certificate into a file and manually import it. But we have yet to see if this fixes the problem.

Thanks,

Martin

Hi,

It appears that if you want a permanent exception for a certificate, you have to manually install the certificate by following the steps outlined here: https://superuser.com/questions/104146/add-permanent-ssl-certificate-exception-in-chrome-linux

A more convenient solution has been asked for from the development team.

On MacOS, its as simple as going to https://localhost:9101/ssl_support ​ and going to the site anyway.  This adds the certificate to the Keychain.

Now the downside is the site I happen to implement this feature on through a custom plugin shows the site as 'Not Secure' simply because one of the certificates isn't properly validated according to Chrome's requirements.

Even if I manually set everything to 'Always Trust'.

Is it possible to fully validate a certificate without a third party?

Just found this!chrome:/

Just found this!

chrome://flags/#allow-insecure-localhost

Enable that guy and chrome will 'Allow requests to localhost over HTTPS even when an invalid certificate is presented.'
