Known Issues:
- WEB UI: Redirect to a custom HTTPS port (other than 443) is broken in the v8.5.0 release. The workaround is to directly type https://<ip>:<https-port> in the browser's address bar. If you use the default HTTPS port 443 or have HTTPS disabled, WEB UI will work fine.





You can find "-CS" versions that support custom scripts HERE.
