Network devices ssh and https access

Hi,

I have new setup of IMC 7.2. I have added Cisco, Juniper and hp network devices.

For network devices access i am using SSH and https. But i am unable to access network devices from IMC. I have installed latest Java, flash player, IE 11 and Firefox v33 on my system.

Please suggest solution for below query.

1) SSH access error = plugin missing. (How to attach putty.exe with SSH option)

2) HTTPS access = no error message. displaying blank page.

3) IMC https access = i want to access IMC using HTTPS insted of http.

Thanks...

Re: Network devices ssh and https access

Let's start with what should be a simple one: HTTPS access to IMC. By default, IMC will listen on port 8080 for HTTP and port 8443 for HTTPS. You can change this at install time. You can also change it using <IMC>/client/bin/setwebport.sh or setwebport.bat (depends if you're on Windows or Linux). I usually like IMC to run on ports 80 & 443.

It's also possible to configure IMC to redirect HTTP to HTTPS.

Is the server listening on port 8443? Use netstat to check.

Deal with one problem at a time. Is HTTPS access to IMC working now?

Re: Network devices ssh and https access

OK, next item. HTTPS access to network devices.

Are you clicking on the "Open Web Manager" link on the Device Details page? By default, it will use HTTP on port 80.

You can change it on a per-device basis, and/or a global basis. You probably want to go to System -> System Configuration -> System Settings. Under "Web Manager Configuration", change the protocol to HTTPS, and the port to 443. Click OK. Then try again.

You can also change it on per-device basis by going to the Device Details page, Configure -> Modify Web Manager Parameters.

Re: Network devices ssh and https access

Hello,

That has been already configured. While i clicked open web page, new blank window open with respective device ip address in address bar.

Do i need to install plugin or decrease broweser trusted site security level?

Thanks...

Re: Network devices ssh and https access

There's nothing special about what IMC is doing there - it is just opening a new browser window pointing to https://<device_IP>

Have you configured HTTPS on your network devices? What happens if you open a new browser window, and attempt to connect to https://<device_ip>/ ?

Re: Network devices ssh and https access

Hi,

I have configured https with port no. 443 on network devices and i am able to access device to open new browser window with https://10.128.1.10

In IMC i have configured https with 443 port for device but after clicked on open web access new blank window opended without https://

We will continue on above issue. Can you please suggest SSH application configuration to establish an SSH session with the selected device

Thanks.

Double-check that you have set the protocol as well as the port. All IMC is doing is launching a browser window. It's not doing anything else. Run Wireshark, and click on the web access link within IMC. Check to see what traffic is sent between your browser & the switch.

What happens when you click on the SSH link? Screenshots might be helpful here.
