When accessing Central Administration with Google Chrome you will get the following: “This webpage is unavailable” with the description: Error 312 (net::ERR_UNSAFE_PORT): Unknown error. In order to fix that edit the Properties of the Chrome link and append the following to the “target” value: –explicitly-allowed-ports=42 where 42 is the port for your Central Administration.
