[Closed] Brave is incompatible with iRacing service

solved

#1

The iracing.com service is incompatible with Brave, it fails with “System Not In Service”:

It requires communicating with software that runs a HTTP server on localhost, and fails with errors such as:

GET http://127.0.0.1:32034/get_sim_status?object=simStatus&1483852029981 403 (Forbidden)

You need to sign up for a paid account to reproduce the issue. As far as I can tell there is no workaround except to use a different browser.

All other browsers (that I know of) are compatible with the iRacing service.


#2

Would you try again with disabling the shield from the top right lion icon?


#3

Thanks, that does fix it for me.

But really that’s not an acceptable solution. iRacing has ad trackers that I want to block, and also a community forum with tens of thousands of members who could post malware (and many of them do post trackers as part of their forum signature). I definitely don’t want to lower the shield.

Is there some way to selectively allow access to localhost on port 32034?


#4

I’d agree! In a future features to allow/deny resources selectively will be available, for example:

It would let the page loaded keeping the other stuff to be blocked :slight_smile:
