ILO Remote Console over internet

Hello everybody


I'm Jonathan and i work as a student in an small enterprise who uses two servers HP Proliant (ML 350 & DL 380, both in gen8).


I configured the ILO and in the lan i'm able to lauch the remote console desktop via the web interface (.net and java) but when i try to do it over internet i doesn't lauch it (publicIp:forwardedPort). Actually it doesn't do anything than the web service. So i have all the information about the servers but i can't connect to them.


My firewall is a fortinet i port forwarded those ports to my ILO (for each server):

22, 17990, 80, 443, 17988, 161, 162, 623, 23, 3389, 9300 3002.


but it still not working ...


Have you a clue ?


Thank you ;)

I know that in an tech fasion I'm not answering your question but your setup could cause a high paid "security guru" to shovel a lot of critizism your way :) Some credible, most BS. Fortinet can do very elegant VPN. Why not do that and forget about figuring out the ports; those will depend on whether you use the java client; the active-x or the .net one based on the iLO you happened to own; license for the advance feature; etc


If you are bent on doing port forwarding I would wire shark an inside session and then copy whatever ports you see being used to the fortinet port forwarding setup

Thanks for your answer.


The VPN idea is, to me, a very good one.


I'll talk with my boss but, for everything, i'll be easier to implement that vpn because we have a lot of virtual machine to access. It's better than PublicIp+port.


Otherwise i'll scan with wirehshark.
