Yeah, I have already installed both of those packages. I download opera just to see if maybe it was an issue with the browser I was using (Modzilla Firefox) but to no avail. However, Opera actually gave an error message as oppose to just a blank page like Firefox. when proceeding past the initial VCL Welcome log in, Opera then redirects me to a an error page which displays "The remote server or file is not found".
Again, the URL is https"//<ipaddress>/vcl.index.php
