Remote Console (ActiveX) bug

Hi,

I'm a developer on a proxy product that has support for a large set of different applications. I have recently developed patterns for ILO and stumbled upon a bug in the ActiveX components. By default both the ActiveX and Java applet components connects back to port 23 (Telnet) on the server (Defined in variable info6). If another port is defined the Java applet connects to the changed port but the ActiveX components refuses. This can be interpreted as a security measure against proxies but since the Java applets lacks the feature I think it's a bug.
In my research it seems that the port is incorporated in one of the hashes that the ActiveX component uses or even worse hardcoded.

I can develop a workaround for this but it would be easier if it was fixed in the ILO software.

Regards
