This article describes how to configure the Java console to prevent the GSX Monitor web applet from being blocked by Java security policies. Introduced in Java 7 update 51, are new security policies that do not allow applets to run on a page by default. Any website that uses applets, such as GSX Web Enabler, must be added to an exception list so that the applet is allowed to execute.
Below we will look at where this is configured and how to add the GSX Web Enabler site to the exception list.
GSX Web Enabler can also be called Moniweb or Monitor OnTheFly. These names all refer to the same web application. In this article, we will use GSX Web Enabler.
When opening the GSX Web Enabler page from any web browser, you receive the following error message:
- Application Blocked by Security Setting.
- Your security settings have blocked an untrusted application from running.
How to Solve the Issue
Below we list the necessary steps to change the default security settings in the Java plugin used by the GSX Web Enabler application:
- Copy the GSX Web Enabler URL you were browsing when the Java error box displayed (http://labgsx1.gsx.lab/Moniweb in our example).
- From Windows Start Menu, go to All Programs / Java and open the Configure Java shortcut:
- On the Security tab, click on the Edit Site List.
- Click on Add.
- Enter the GSX Web Enabler URL you copied at Step 1 (ie: http://labgsx1.gsx.lab/Moniweb in our example):
- Click OK twice to save the configuration.
- Close the browser to remove any cached information.
- Reload the web page from the web browser.
