Description:
I have a completely silo’d lab environment that has no DNS. I want to be able to access my bitnami gitlab without getting SSL errors, but I’m finding it difficult to do so. I tried following some of the instructions and using the IP address instead of a FQDN but that didn’t work.

Is there anyway for me to get around SSL while using the IP address of the VM to access gitlab?

Once you accept the certificate for the first time, the browser shouldn’t ask for that confirmation again. You can also update the list of certificates to use in chrome by following this guide
