[SOLVED] Console Timeout

I was having issues connecting to the console as well. Fresh install. Messed with some SSL settings in ESET and it worked. Proxmox unchanged. Changed the settings back and it still works.

Random as hell. Can't say it builds faith in a product. Doesn't work, come back in a few hours and it does....

Like I said. That probably has nothing to do with Proxmox. Try disabling IPv6 and/or check you DNS.

same problem here. not using eset. none of the browser work (tried Firefox, Vivaldi, Chromium Edge)

edit: the issue is related to how I address the PVE Webui. If accessing normally via <ip address>:8006 then it works. however normally i have set up a reverse proxy making pve webui accessible over pve.mydomain.tld - in this case the console does not work. probably a certificate issue

edit 2: as dcsapak corretly hinted below, it was related to missing websockets setup. works now.

did you also setup your reverse proxy to handle websockets? (normally this is not done by default)

Still sounds like a DNS/IPv6 issue to me.
