QNAP Systems, Inc. - Network Attached Storage (NAS)



Virtualization Station’s web UI cannot be displayed properly when using HTTPS with Safari®.

Applied Models:


Safari® does not trust self-signed certificates by default. To resolve this problem, the SSL certificate of the NAS must be added to Safari®’s trusted list:

  1. Open Safari, and in the address bar enter “https://[Your NAS IP Address]:8089”. For example: “”.
    Safari® will pop up a dialog box saying that the website cannot be verified. Click “Show Certificate”.

    Note: 8089 is the default SSL port for Virtualization Station. If this has been changed, then change the port number in the address above to the one set under “Virtualization Station > Preferences > Virtualization Station (SSL) > Port”
  2. Select “Always trust “QNAP NAS” when connecting to “[Your NAS IP Address]””. Click “Continue”.
  3. Enter your Mac password, and then click “Update Settings”.
  4. When you next log into Virtualization Station using Safari, the web user interface will be displayed properly.
