The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be

When I try to access the Web Admin Interface via ethernet on my SurfSoho MK3 router version 8.** or later, I get “The certificate for this server is invalid. You might be connecting to a server that is pretending to be “***” which could put your confidential information at risk.”

I get this message on all browsers on all OS’s. Firefox and EDGE on my PC under Windows 10 or Firefox under Linux allow me to bypass the error/restriction and successfully logon to the Web Admin Interface.
My problem is that I cannot bring up the Web Admin Interface on my Apple iPhone xs, iPhone 6 or Air 2. I am able to connect and login to my older SurfSoho using any device.

Thanks.

Hello and welcome.

Assuming you are using Safari on your iDevices you can choose to accept the self signed certificate being presented by your router.

Tap on “show details” when you get the error page, and then on “visit this website”.

Tested just now on my iPhone running the latest iOS.

Or, add a local DNS record for https://captive-portal.peplink.com with your LAN IP as the host then use that instead of your IP to access the webadmin page.
