Hi, I'm trying to connect to website using burp chromium browser. But most of the time, the loading end by an error screen saying "failed to connect to website.com:443" I searched but didn't fought any awnser that helped me. Also my proxy listener is with port 8080 and not 433 if it's in relation. I'm on rdp windows. Thanks for you answers

Hi, This message is usually indicative of Burp not being able to connect to the destination web server. Do you see this error message for every site that you try to browse to when Burp is running or just certain ones? Do you normally use a LAN proxy to access the internet in your environment?

I am having the same issue as this, specifically for labs. Have you found a solution?

Hi James, Just to clarify the scenario - are you only seeing this when interacting with the labs and is it only when you come to attempt to launch a lab?

Hi Ben, I am having the same issue, using Burp on Mac. Even using embedded Chromium browser and still getting same error for every site: Error Failed to connect to facebook.com:443 or Error Failed to connect to google.com:443 ..and yes, using LAN proxy for accessing internet. Could you help me with this? Thank you!

Well I am not sure which one really helped but I will try to explain how I solved this issue (that I asked above) Firstly I added certificate of my local proxy to burp as it is shown here: https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/tnpm/1.4.2?topic=security-import-certificate-jre-keystore Secondly I defined an upstream proxy in burp (User options > Upstream Proxy Servers) by defining a rule with (host: *, ip: <ip of local proxy>, port: <port of local proxy>). ..and it solved the problem for me, hope it helps you too!

Hi, Glad to hear that you were able to resolve the issue - your solutions makes sense. By default, Burp will try to make direct requests to the destination web server - if you have some kind of proxy in place in your environment you would need to configure this under the Upstream Proxy Server settings within Burp so that Burp will then issue requests via this proxy. Depending upon the type of proxy in place you might, as was the case in your situation, need to add the corresponding certificate to the Java trust store that is being used.
