"remote control" is enabled in JOSM.

When I choose the JOSM link from KEEPRIGHT I get a flicker of text across the bottom of the screen that reads


The link from KEEPRIGHT to id works fine.

I'm using JSOM stable version 11826 on a PC running windows 10 and the chrome browser

I should mention that the link from whodidit to josm does work.

Does your JOSM remote control via HTTPS work with other sites? E.g. with I guess not.

  1. Did you enable HTTPS in the JOSM remote control settings?
  2. Did you once accept the JOSM certificate for this connection in your browser (see )?

enabling HTTPS in the JOSM remote control settings solved the problem.

Semi-related question: JOSM remote control broke recently for me. . . Looking into it I see that even though I have HTTPS enabled in the JOSM preferences it is not actually listening to port 8112. It is listening on port 8111 (the non-HTTPS port).

I see nothing in the Macintosh firewall settings that seem like they will affect this. Disabling the Macintosh firewall does not fix the issue. I've save some older versions of JOSM which I know worked and they have the same issue, so I don't think it is a bug in the current JOSM release.

That leaves me with Java. And thinking back on the timing, it could be that JOSM remote control has been broken since I updated to Java 8 Update 121. I don't see anything that seems like it would affect this in the Java control panel. The Java control panel tells me that I have the correct version for my computer.

Any suggestions? (My work around at present is to reopen using http:// rather than https:// and then the edit button works).

stf, could you please open a new question entry for this. You know how this site works, don't you? :-) You can link to this question in your question text if you think it is related.

Same problem with me. OSMOSE works fine but Keepright will not open in JOSM. I accepted the JOSM certificate. Two weeks ago it worked fine. Nothing has been changed on my PC. HTTPS in the JOSM remote control settings does not solve the problem.

I solved the problem. Click with your right mouse button on the JOSM link in Keepright and choose "open link in a new window". You will see that this page has no secure connection. If you make an exception for this page, so it works without certificate, you will have the connection between Keepright and JOSM again working.
