    The remote sessions are very slow when taking control of devices through the web console.


    The BCM agent certificate hasn't been imported on the system/browser.



    When the BCM agent SSL certificate is installed on the device that is controlling the target device it improves the performance of the operations ran using the browser-based console.
    The certificate authority should be installed on all devices from which the web console will be ran from:
    - connect to the web console, the URL is https://_YOUR_MASTER_:_YOUR_CONSOLE_PORT_/webconsole where _YOUR_MASTER_ is the master ip address or hostname and _YOUR_CONSOLE_PORT_ is most likely 1611
    For this example, the web console is running from the master, thus _YOUR_MASTER_ being "localhost".
    - open the menu on the top right and click on "SSL Certificate":

    - close the tab/window then reopen https://_YOUR_MASTER_:_YOUR_CONSOLE_PORT_/webconsole (refreshing the page should be sufficient though)
