There are several configuration/setup problems that can result in an inability to launch a HTML Access (Blast) connection successfully.

  • Browser is not HTML5 compliant. Check that the browser version is one cited in the requirements.
  • Pop-up blocker enabled. The browser’s pop-up blocker could prevent opening the new window for a HTML Access connection. Make sure that the user disables the pop-up blocker.
  • Windows firewall disabled. Make sure that the Windows Firewall is installed and running on the user’s desktop. A disabled Windows Firewall will result in errors reported in the HTML Access logs.
  • Certificate errors. If you receive an error that indicates a missing or non-matching certificate, review the instructions above under Import Certificate and Record Certificate Thumbprint and confirm that you have performed the necessary steps.
