I can't speak for [~steffkes], who does most of our UI work, but I suspect that the current
level of functionality would be very difficult to achieve in a way that's compatible with
a text browser.

If you're trying to use a text-based browser, It's unlikely that you are running Solr on Windows.
 If you have ssh access to the server from a graphical client, you can forward a local port
to the Solr port on the remote system, and then access localhost:port/solr in a graphical
browser on the machine making the ssh connection.  This works with PuTTY as well as virtually
all commandline ssh clients.  If access requires a multi-hop ssh, you can do a port-forwarding
chain.  It can be a little confusing to set up a port-forwarding chain, but it does work.

If you're trying to use a text-based browser, the chance of it running on Windows is pretty
small.  If you have ssh access to the server from a graphical client, you can forward a local

>          Components: web gui
>    Affects Versions: 4.4
>         Environment: All
>            Reporter: Alasdair Campbell
>            Priority: Minor
>              Labels: javascript

> The Core Selector part of the web gui is not compatible with text based web browsers
(lynx/elinks) rendering the control panel useless.
> Priority increases when installed on a remote server when you do not wish Solr access
from outwith the server.
