    Hi @BacemSOUISSI,

    Firefox will allow you to complete the task.
    It used to work in Chrome aslo, but latest Chrome releases removed that capability.


  • Thank you !

    @sergeizak Are you using Chrome? Please read previous posts, as they usually provide explanations and solutions. In this situation, if you are using Chrome, you will need to use a different browser, such a Firefox, to complete this step.

  • I have read the previous post. I tried Edge and Firefox to no avail. The issue I am having is not the same though. Original post is about "Your connection is not private" issue. In my case, the error is "This site can’t be reached"

    Hi @sergeizak,

    You are experiencing a different issue. Where are you running your Kubernetes cluster (cloud VMs, local VMs, etc.)?
    What is the output of the following command?

    kubectl -n kubernetes-dashboard get svc kubernetes-dashboard


  • I was running it from GCP. Unfortunately, my free trial ended and I am rebuilding the cluster. At the moment, I am on lab 3.1 step 16 and getting "Unable to connect to the server: dial tcp i/o timeout" trying to

    kubectl apply -f calico.yaml

  • i am all set here.. i realized that i didn't provide correct internal ip in /etc/hosts.. After providing correct IP i was able to deploy calico.yaml
