    I am trying to stream rtmp to webCallServer.

    I have installed a trial webCallServer on an ubuntu virtualBox and set the stream from the encoder to the server's address:
    The encoder says that it is connected but I cannot view the stream, I get the following message on the browser:
    WebSocket connection to 'wss://' failed: Error in connection establishment: net::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID

    I have read that it is a certificate issue but maybe because it is a trial the certificate buttons are grayed (and I can not create a certificate without a domain which I am not going to have).

    I must mention that my intentions are to work offline.

    Establishing wss-connection can work from Chrome in the case. With Firefox or Safari, try using HTTP (http://WCS:8081/admin/demo.html).
    The buttons on the Security and License pages are disabled when logged in as demo-user; will be enabled when logged in as admin.

    Hello Max, Thank you for your answer.
    I am using chrome and yes I was logged in as demo so it can explain the issue.
    What about the certificate on offline network? the tutorial speaks about using the tool to generate a certificate but it requires a domain name.
    How can I bypass it?

    Good day.
    Please try to use mkcert to make locally-trusted development certificate.

    please, say it clearly in interface, that "demo"-user does not have enough rights. I really stacked at this for hours.
    Next clients will not have this problem if they see "demo" warning)
