I know this sounds pretty random, but if you use Internet Explorer as your browser tool, you may want to try what works for me:
1) Open the ARCHTTP tool
2) Click on Controller #01 (it will show highlighted)
3) Click the Launch Browser button
4) Repeat steps 2) and 3) several times
5) Close all the browser windows that have been launched so far
6) Repeat steps 2) and 3) again and it should work
Sounds like witch art, bu on my Win7 PC this tool seems to have difficulty with IE now, where a few months ago it did not. Possibly some new Microsoft patches have changed something regarding how the Areca hardware/software/firmware connections happens, or in this case, has difficulties.
This may not help at all, but I thought your difficulty could somehow be related to mine.
what a crazy tutorial....... but it worked perfect.
The point is that i have to repeat step 4 two times without closing the invalid browser.
Everything is best and works fine.
thanks a lot for help

I'm so glad, and also a bit surprised that this worked for you too!
Can anyone explain what is going on here?
Have others experienced this difficulty too!?
This is likely do to new Phishing or Popup rules in IE9. Most web based controller management utility's do not show up as a valid website since they use local host or internal IP addresses. I know Areca has in the past used Java for their utility which also trips many of those rules. Try adding the web utility as a trusted website.
That does sound like a plausible explanation for what we are seeing.
Guess we will have to keep doing the "dance" to access this proxy service.
Uncheck "Require server verification" in the trusted sites tab.
Erics latest tip, uncheck "requires server verification", did allow me to set it as a trusted site; next I set "trusted sites" to "low" security level. And, it is working much better now - every other time I select "Controller #01(PCI)" and click the "Launch Browser" button it works! Still strange, but we do seem to be moving forward.
Perhaps it has someting to do with "port" security? It is going to:
See if the Web management server listens on Port 80 as well. It very well maybe the Port 81 that is causing that since it's not a common Web server port.
once in the past you could help me, may i ask again?
I am running Win7 64bit, Areca 1680 V-1.85 worked fine.
1.) i uninstalled Areca 1680 V-1.85
2.) i downloaded Areca 1680 V-1.87 and unzipped
3.) i run "install.exe" as administrator, the installer opened and was running till "done"
4.) ArcHTTP-GUI appears on desctop
5.) when i run ArcHTTP-GUI the message "application has one instance in the system" - after klick "ok" it disappears
Areca MBIOS works still fine.
Win - start - all Pogramms dont show "ArcHTTP-GUI"
Explorer - Programms(86x) - MRAID- ArcHTTP- shows "ArcHttpSrvGUI.exe", but does not work
Not sure if you've tried running it from Firefox, but it has been discussed on a Mac based forum that using Safari has problems, whereas using Firefox does not. Might try installing Firefox and giving it a shot. It's the only browser I use, and I've never had any issues with it.
Have you tried the following: Enter your browser (IE, Firefox or Chrome) and in the address bar enter:
Does that not give you all the access you need? I just updated the firmware to 1.49 and installed new drivers 6.20.00.22 and this worked perfectly for me.
it works now.
Areca System Information shows now:
BOOT Rom: V 1.48
SAS Firmware 126.96.36.199
is this ok?
Thanks a lot.
its done and works
