Unable to Access FortiGate WebUI from HTTPS

Hello, I' ve been running into an issue trying to get https access to my FortiGate VM. I' ve confirmed HTTPS and SSH access is allowed to the port I' m trying to access. I have no configurations to only allow access from particular hosts. HTTP, ping and SSH all work just fine I receive the following message when I try and access it via HTTPS on Chrome. " The webpage is not available" and when I select the More button I get this: Error code: ERR_SSL_VERSION_OR_CIPHER_MISMATCH When I try and access this from Firefox I get the following: Secure Connection Failed Cannot communicate securely with peer: no common encryption algorithm(s) (Error code: ssl_error_no_cypher_overlap) I found mention of the Firefox error in the FortiMail Install Guide. It says I need to enter " about:config" and set the following to true: security.ssl3.rsa.rc4_40_md5 This entry wasn' t even in there so I added both as a string and Boolean and set it to true with the same results I am using the 5.0.5 Release and this is a fresh install Is there a way I can edit the certificate that the FortiGate is using and change it to some acceptable encryption? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Are you using a trial version of the FortiGate VM?
The 15-day evaluation license limitations include: • Low encryption only. When configuring the port1 interface, you must configure set allowaccess http
