Pepwave has introduced https security protocols in the 8.1 firmware that may cause certain internet browsers to pop up a security error when accessing the administration console. This error can be bypassed safely without issue as there is no security risk in accessing a Pepwave device on your local network. This article will show you how to bypass this error.
Bypassing Error on Google Chrome
When accessing your Pepwave device administration console at 192.168.50.1 you may receive an error that the site is not secure. This error is normal and due to the Pepwave not having a security certificate assigned to it (which local devices on your network typically do not have). Web browsers are not programmed to know that the 192.168.50.x network is your local network so they may show the following error.
This error can be safely bypassed by clicking on the "Advanced" button and then by clicking Proceed. See below screenshots.
This will bring up the proceed dialog box. Simply click proceed to be redirected back to the Peplink login screen. It is not unsafe, there is no risk to you or your information by clicking this link as all of this is occurring inside of your local network and not on the internet where 3rd parties would have access. This is a generic error message and can be bypassed. See below screenshot.
Safari MacOs Browser
This error can be safely bypassed by clicking on the "Show Details" button and then by clicking "Visit Website". See below screenshots.
This will bring up the "visit website" dialog box (see below). Simply click proceed to be redirected back to the Peplink login screen.
Depending on your security settings you may be asked to provide your login password to add the Pepwave to your safe browsing list. The dialog box will pop-up asking for your touch id or password. Enter the password used to login to your computer when it first powers on at this screen.
