WAAS CM GUI 403 error

I am testing a WAAS solution prior to deployment in our lab, and need some assistance with the error below:     


You don't have permission to access /8443 on this server.

Apache/1.3.41 Server at COHO-WM-01 Port 443

My central manager is a WAVE-274 running 4.4.5c. It is accessivly via CLI but when accessed via GUI I get the 403 error above.

As it is a lab environment none the domain, NTP and DNS servers are unreachable. Not sure if this is a cause?
Also, the release notes for 4.4.5c specify that the CM must be on a higher version than the other WAAS appliances (WAVE 694, SRE 710's). Could this be the issue?

Any assistance is appeciated.
