ILO console problems with Linux/Firefox

Does anyone else have issues with getting a console window using Firefox on Linux. it seems tailored to require I.E. It constantly complains about my Java versions and no matter which distribution I try; Fedora 9, fedora 10, CenOS 5, and even Solaris X86 ( Debian I finally got to work ) the Java console wouldn't display. these are new DL 360 G5's

Re: ILO console problems with Linux/Firefox

hi

Integrated remote console only works with IE since it is Active X based.

Remote console works with java which means you can IE as well as firefox

what is the error you are getting with java?
which firmware version for you ilo?


thanks a lot

Re: ILO console problems with Linux/Firefox

Yup thats my understanding as well. ILO firmware is 1.6 07/11/2008.

As to the errors, either it hangs in the pop up window once you select the remote console ( third option from the top in the remote console tab ) with the "starting applet" on the lower left, or it says I need to install the Sun JVM but still wont work after I install it.

Re: ILO console problems with Linux/Firefox

yeah some of the guys here have it running as well but I cant get it to work on my machine to save my life. ( BTW I think the link you gave me is for windows systems? the start> control panel instruction is a dead give away )

Re: ILO console problems with Linux/Firefox

No guarantees - I happen to use an 8510w running Ubuntu Hardy Heron onto which I have installed the Sun JVM (perhaps Ubuntu did it itself, I cannot recall) and I am able to use the "Remote Console" without much difficulty. Just to be certain, you might consider removing all JVM's but the Sun JVM.

Of course this is the "Remote Console" not the "Integrated Remote Console"...

I've gotten rather into the "right-mouse-button-drag" to "join" the two cursors thing, and keyboard shortcuts are a great help.
