I still can’t access the drive my brother has, and using ftp is not an option as he would have to set it up. His java update still works so he doesn’t need to do anything for remote access.
Lowering permission does not make any difference, and adding the site to the exceptions list does not work as one of the subsidiary applications is hosted on other sites as well.
WD needs to get their certificates updated so they load without warnings.
It seems unacceptable to me anyway to have to ignore dire warnings as I had to before to access this drive remotely.
The warning did say the certificate would be refused completely aftert the next java update so contact the software supplier to get the certificate updated. Clearly WD have not updated the certificate and Java have carried out the threat and willno longer run the application as it stands.
Could this be a windows 8 issue as I am using this and my brother is using 7. My son can still access this from his laptop on 7 here
