All is well when I "Proceed Anyway" -- until I restart Chrome. Then the warning comes back.




This is not a dotjs problem.

However, I think it should be mentioned on the README.


Thanks for the link.

Did you manage to make this work?
I added the certificate, but now it says that the certificate does not match the URL :-/


@fklingler Sadly no. Not with Google Chrome. Safari works fine after restarting it.


@fuadsaud Maybe we could recreate the server certificate to set the URL as localhost, I don't know if it's really the problem?


@defunkt thoughts?


Same problem.


👍 I had this error too!


I tried manually installing the cert, but this is the error I get:

You attempted to reach localhost, but instead you actually reached a server
identifying itself  as . This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server
or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get
you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of localhost.

Sounds like the dotjs server isn't identifying itself correctly as localhost, so Chrome still thinks the cert doesn't match.


I took a stab in the dark and figured out a workaround for this.

I told the server to identify itself has localhost, instead of whatever WEBrick thinks it should be called: burkemw3@3e74065. Then, I used Rob Peck's directions to trust the cert.

I am not submitting a pull request at this time because I have not done any due diligence investigating SSLCertName or WEBrick::Utils::getservername.

I was experiencing this issue today with djsd v2.0.0 from b8b545d and extension v2.0.1 from the Chrome Web Store.


works now
