    Best I can tell, the recent update for Chrome blocks accessing a newly installed esxi homelab setup's web interface.

    The esxi server says it's running on 192.168.0.209
    Attempts to use chrome to get to 192.168.0.209 result in:

    This site can’t provide a secure connection
    192.168.0.209 uses an unsupported protocol.

    ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH​

    details have

    Unsupported protocol
    The client and server don't support a common SSL protocol version or cipher suite.​

    I can use Putty to access the esxi system (after directly accessing the system and enabling esxishell and ssl).
    I also booted an older VM with an older Win10/Chrome setup and had no issues reaching the esxi web interface.
    I've checked the time on both and they're sync'd.

    Any suggestions?
    Is there a way to force chrome to just connect to an address?
    Is there a way to update the SSL certs on esxi to be compliant with the new Chrome enforcement?

    I should note, that previously, I have setup and accessed esxi test labs. All previous times, when trying to access the wed interface from a separate local system, I got a warning and could click on proceed if you are sure kind of message.

    Wow, same here.
    Web Client was working last week, the last time I used it.
    Now today I get the same error as you.

    Chrom Dev here.

    I disabled Bitdefender protection and now it works.

    Bingo - you got it. Bitdefender protection was the root cause. Thanks!

    Yeah, I tried adding my vSphere URL to the bypass list (or whatever it's called) but Bitdefender kept locking it down anyway. So I gave up and moved to a different Antivirus.
