I am using Windows 7 and I installed Red 5 0.9.1 just recently. After it installed I put as the IP adress and 5080 as http port. After I start the service in windows I try to connect to the localhost in firefox (http://localhost:5080) and get this error

An error occurred during a connection to localhost:5080.

SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.

(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)

I checked my global flash settings and allowed localhost to pass along with the Red 5 folder in C/programfiles/red5. I currently have the up to date versions of JDK and JRE also. Any tips on what might be wrong?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Are you connecting to http or https? That error should only ever occur if you've entered https in your browser. – Shane Madden Apr 12 '12 at 2:45
Crazy, I must have typed it as https repetitively without notice. http works fine. Thanks – charles horvath Apr 12 '12 at 3:27
