Can't access unleashed web interface page - Certificate problem


I've messed up my web access to the unleashed interface page by installing the wrong certificate (Cloudflare) in the administration area, now I'm not able to access my R600 AP by browser anymore (Unleashed ver. build 127).

When I try to access http://unleashed.ruckuswireless.com/ or I get redirected to the "Not secure" site http://cloudflare/tohttps.jsp and then https://cloudflare/ 

  • I've tried to set up my "hosts" file on windows to " cloudflare" so I could maybe access the interface again,
  • I've turned off the "Warn about certificate address mismatch*" in the Advanced - Internet Option
  • I've installed the same certificate to the "Trusted root cert auth."
  • ... to no avail

I even went through all the Unleashed CLI documentation  and found nothing on

  • resetting the default certificate or
  • manually setting "https:/unleashed/" for the path of the web interface instead of "http://unleashed.ruckuswireless.com/"

Can anything still save me from resetting the whole AP to factory defaults?

Any help would be strongly appreciated. 

Best regards to all!

Hey guys thanx for the effort. I just came across this weird browser "Pale Moon" which let me bypass this certificate issue that the modern browser today just won't let go. So I've managed to log in and reset the old Ruckus certificate. Everything works again.

Well if I'm curious how things work I give it a try and often break things along the way. I just love a challenge like that from time to time :D Sorry for the nuisance.

Best regards again.

It's difficult to imagine why you wanted to replace the certificate. AP management interface should be never available from internet, and public certificate   doesn't make sense on private addresses, as it doesn't mean anything than. Also it seems that you messed more than just certificate in the configuration.


I suspect that it will be much faster and safer to reset configuration and reconfigure it from scratch.

I've accidentally done this before.

Trying to use http will always redirect you, but hitting https instead (e.g. should just give you the warning and let you proceed.

It is a shame there seems to be no cli for certificate management. I wrote a script to apply certs using curl (at https://ms264556.github.io/Hackery/pages/PfSenseLetsEncryptToRuckus.html) which you could use to choose a better domain for the redirect.
