HTTPS traffic on port 8080 is dropped by SecuRemote

No comments :
After installing VPN-1 SecuRemote/SecureClient NGX R60, my PC is unable to connect to https websites through a port 8080 proxy. Some googling around lead me to this.

Can't view HTTPS web pages
I have installed Securemote on a XP (Pro) PC so that it can access a remotely hosted server/application which works OK. However, since the Securemote software has been loaded, the user is not able to view HTTPS web pages, he can view HTTP pages OK.

If I uncheck the Securemote client in the network options in XP, the HTTPS pages are able to be viewed, but then the Securemote can not be used.

Is there any configuration change that can be made to Securemote to stop it interfering with the HTTPS traffic?

Thanks for your help.

Digging through brought me to below solution;

Re: Securemote blocking access to https pages through proxy.


try this:

1. Navigate to HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\FW1\parameters.
2. Add a new key called "Globals."

3. Under the "Globals" key, add a DWORD parameter called "asm_http_allow_connect," and set its value to 14. Reboot the computer

i got this from my support, and they say that Securemote does not acceppt "CONNECT" per default.

CP says this is no failure, and won't change the behaviour.


I've tried it and it works. Just create a new dword regsitry entry as below;

Or you can open your notepad, copy & paste contents below, save it as fix.reg, right click and select Merge.
