web console, which port to authenticate?

Anyone got any idea what port web consoles use when they are authenticating?

I've set up a web console to be accessed via, I can access the intial login screen ok.
But when you try to login it is not connecting.

Cheers

George

Re: web console, which port to authenticate?

Hi,

The web console authentication is via HTTP/80. However, once authenticated, a telnet/23 connection is attempted.

Refer to the following detailed analysis for more information:

Hope this helps. Regards.

Thanks for the link Steven.

Not to happy if i have to open up telnet port, to get access though.

Makes security a bit awkward!

Re: web console, which port to authenticate?

George,

Are you trying to access the web console remotely and through a firewall? Is the web console built into the server or an external one? Is it the branded HP one or Arula?

Re: web console, which port to authenticate?

Hallo Harry.

I do have a firewall on the pc that i'm using as a router between cable modem and the web console on internal lan, which is why i needed to know which ports were used.

I'm using wingate to route between int/ext ip's.

The web console is a standard external hp one connected to my faithful I50.

I want this to be a test server, that people can use to practice admin tasks.

But i dont want it to be abused, i'm not having any n/w connections out from it, hence the web console.

Have fun

Hi George,

First thing I'd verify is that a standard terminal works as the console (just to rule out console port issues).

Re: web console, which port to authenticate?

Tried a normal console and it's ok.

Shooved a packet sniffer on and noticed that it uses variable ports for the java stuff, which is a major pain.

Trying to come up with a plan b at the moment.
