ERAC browser access?

I'm having the problem described in 
in which no linux browser is able to access the ERA web interface (in my 
case, the machine is a 2650). Is there any workaround for this? I have a 
little bit of additional information: when I use mozilla and the sun jvm 
plugin, the following exception always appears in the plugin log 
        at java.lang.Class.getResourceAsStream(
        at RAObjectLoader.generateContent(
        at RAObjectLoader.<init>(
        at RAProxyServer$

This error occurs while the login page is being drawn, not when the 
password is submitted, and it seems that once the proxy server encounters 
an error, it stops processing requests. (It does not seem to be the case, 
as a recent post implied, that the problem is the rac giving the brower 
cabs instead of jars. content.jar, gui.jar, vncviewer.jar, and jpeg.jar are 
all exported by the rac, and can be fetched with e.g. lynx for 

Another error sometimes appears in addition to the above, and probably 
occurs when the proxy server gives up. It represents the same condition 
that causes netscape 4 to display the "connection reset" error. Could not connect to http://localhost:33738/gui.jar 
with response code -1

On a seperate note, I also had a problem getting racser-src to work in the 
first place (using kernel-2.4.18-18.7.x). It seems as though the racser 
kernel module doesn't export the pci uart as the first serial port. It 
instead has four bogus enties corresponding to the classic PC serial ports, 
and exports the rac as COM5/minor 4:

[root at spare-2650 root]# cat /proc/tty/driver/racser
serinfo:1.0 driver:1.00 revision:2001-09-11
0: uart:unknown port:3F8 irq:4
0: uart:unknown port:2F8 irq:3
0: uart:unknown port:3E8 irq:4
0: uart:unknown port:2E8 irq:3
0: uart:16550A port:EC80 irq:23 baud:9600 tx:459629 rx:9430373 

Moving /dev/racser from minor 0 to minor 4 allows ppp to work just fine. 
Has this ever worked out of the box?
