In my case W10 and Edge. I tried Hpps://sefinecast.co.uk and got a warning of an untrustworthy site.  There is something very strange going on.  I suspect that validation certificates have not been updated and consequently some systems (the better protected ones - perhaps too protected) are rejecting access.

I've been able to access with Safari on OSX and iOS, but both show a warning of a not secure connection. So no https certificate.

That was the problem the last time that we had this issue.

 

SEF's webmaster needs to keep certificates up-to-date.

It isn't the only model railway site like that. Some browsers some to be more tolerant than others

 

IT, it's so logical...

It's only got a localhost certificate - so it's not a case of keeping it up to date, it's just got a self-generated one which is essentially meaningless. But there's nothing on the site to warrant it being secured - you can't order through it etc. Just use http://www.sefinecast.co.uk and it should all be fine.

 

It's quite a dated site, but it serves its purpose.

 

All these work fine for me:

 

server2012 r2 (essentially windows 8.1) - chrome and internet explorer

windows 10 - chrome, internet explorer and chrome

windows 7 - internet explorer and firefox.

 

I've not managed to find anything it doesn't work on :)

Fail = Chrome on macbookpro, just clicked your link, same replace index message as usual. It is something odd as it isn't consistent across users and devices.

Sorry - you're wrong!

 

It doesn't work for many of us - as has been pointed out already.

I didn't say there wasn't issues - I was referring to not needing an SSL certificate for the site - i.e. it should be fine without one. Sorry if i wasn't clear :)

 

It seems to be predominantly Mac devices that are having the issues?

What version of Chrome? Help - About shows the version number.

 

The win 10 PC I tested it on is version 1903 so the latest, with the most recent cumulative update. Chrome version 75.0.3770.100

Just tried some testing -

 

i-phone (1) Safari = failed. (2) Chrome - successful  (3) Firefox = not tried

 

i-pad  (1) Chrome - failed (2) Safari = successful (3) Firefox = not tried

 

Macbook pro - (1) Chrome = failed (2) Safari = failed (3) Firefox = successful

 

From one of the notes that Firefox displayed it may be to do with their http: & https" setup clashing with browser settings as you suggest, however, it wasn't clear from the displayed message what the problem is.

 

I am sympathetic, I have similar issue on my island-publishing site currently (too many cookies message) although it still allows everyone in, but not had time yet to investigate the cause which I pretty sure will be somewhere in the Wordpress settings needing putting back to what I had it set to before an upgrade reset things back to a default!

 

 

Firefox opened it yesterday on this device (Macbookpro) After today's firefox update it won't. The http version has the indexing message.

The shown message on https: is - 

 

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.sefinecast.co.uk. Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s). Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP

    The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

 

In due course I would like to know the cause so I don't repeat whatever the problem is on one of the sites I manage.

I've stopped using Firefox because it has become extremely unstable and gets worse with every update.

I have had to repair the registry on my desktop and I've reverted to Explorer. The machine is fine now.

Well having set this particular rabbit running, it is now working for me.  Very strange.

Just revert to XP and Firefox ESR - everything works fine (most of the time!).

Fine here.

 

But I've been having problems with Windows since about mid afternoon. It keeps trying to update, yet nothing is happening. Then I get an error message about failed update.

 

So possibly the problems are being caused by Windows as this seems to occur every time they are doing updates.
