Unable to connect to vSphere Web Client using Firefox or Chrome on Server 2012R2

Jump to solution

I've recently installed the vsphere web client 5.1.0 on my 2K12R2 box.  I get the well known and documented issues when I try to connect using IE11 (but note that I can still connect to the vCenter server). So I decided to try firefox and chrome.

With Firefox I simply get an unable to connect error message - Firefox can't establish a connection to the serer at localhost:9443.  When I try Chrome I get "this web page is not available"  With IE it come up with the problem with the security certificate, but if I continue I can get in.  The other browsers are set to use the system proxy settings so I don't' know what's going on.

Did you try to set the proxy settings to "No Proxy"?

Which system proxy settings are currently configured (netsh winhttp show proxy)?

Is it the same when you use either the vCenter Server's FQDN or IPv4 address instead of "localhost"?

That pointed me in the right direction.  I set my IE to bypass proxy server for local settings and then I was good to go with Firefox and Chrome!
