Solved https site access

Post by moonstar on 8th March 2008, 3:06 am

I recently got a Netgear DG824M ADSL modem and router from a friend of mine. Since installing this, I had been having trouble accessing secure Web sites – the ones that start HTTPS. What do I need to do?

Your router features a built-in firewall and it seems that the port needed for HTTPS access is currently blocked. Log into your router configuration by typing 192.168.0.1 into the address bar of your Web browser and move to the Firewall Rules section. If you see an entry for HTTPS which is marked as Block Always, edit this to Allow Always. If this entry is not visible, click the Add button and select HTTPS(TCP:443) from the drop-down menu. Set the Action to Allow Always and leave the LAN Users setting as Any before clicking Apply.

you're welcome. one more thing...

When your router has rebooted, try connecting to one of the secure sites you’ve been unable to access. You could also add your computer to the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) to give it unrestricted access to the Internet. From the Firewall Rules page, tick the box labelled Default DMZ Sever and enter the IP address of your computer on the network. As this does always completely unrestricted access to the Internet, it’s a good idea to have a software firewall in place.
