iLO2 won't open Remote Console on DL320?

I am having a problem with a few servers where access to iLO is fine, but when I try to open a Remote Console it responds that it can not connect to the server and to check for available telnet connections?

I am not sure if this is a TCP port problem or not. What process does iLO go through to open the Remote Console? Does it do a loopback connection on the iLO NIC? If so, what would prevent it from getting a telnet session open?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Matt,

Is the telnet enabled on the ilo?

All the ports that iLO 2 uses are listed on the Administraion/Access/Services page. The help link summarizes:
Port Description
22 Secure Shell (SSH)
23 Remote Console / telnet
80 Web Server Non-SSL (HTTP)
443 Web Server SSL (HTTPS)
3389 Terminal Services
17988 Virtual Media
9300 Shared Remote Console
17990 Console Replay
3002 Raw Serial Data

For IRC, you will need 23, 443
and optionally 17988, 9300, 17990
