The CLI option in the GUI of routers is not accessible if SSL (https) is turned on, giving the following error message: "To access CLI you need to add certificate acception to your browser!"

There has been given the bad work-around advice to turn off https access of the GUI so to be able to use the GUI CLI, which cannot be regarded a serious advice, concerning networking security. Also some advice to fiddle around with own certificates in the browser.

I suggest that the best is to just fix this bug please and make the CLI accessible in the GUI without compromising security and without having to fiddle around with SSL certificates on any client machine that wants to use it.

This issue is not new, it has been discussed in the past here:

  1. GUI CLI says "To access CLI you need to add certificate acception to your browser!"
  2. Using CLI through Web UI SSL (https) won't work, security
