False Positive on lan server console

I currently run an ESXi server version 6.7.0 Update 3. The console is accessed through a web console and you are required to type in the ip address of the server to access it. In my setup I have a server on my local network and I access it through a local ip address or mac address. Unfortunately I have discovered after installing Bitdefender that it does not allow the console. So I attempted to add an exclusion for the ip address, however I still get a Bitdefender warning page when attempting to access it and it will not load unless I completely disable Bitdefender.

Either I'm doing something wrong or this is a false positive I would guess.

    Same issue here.

    Unless I disable Bitdefender completely, I am unable to access the web console of a FortiGate 40C device with a self signed certificate (even though an exclusion with the IP is present).

    BD, please advise.
