Secure WEb console and blank screen

I have connected a secure web console and set it up, however, when I go into my browser (either IE or Netscape) when I am able to login to SWC but when I try to "Access Console" all I get is the cursor blinking on the screen but it will not bring up the server login.
Any/all help greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Andy

Andy,

What version of Netscape or IE are you running? Can you click on the window that has the terminal display? Then hit return, if nothing happens, try ctrl-b, just to see if you have the web console hooked up correctly. BTW, what kind of server and web console??

Also, for debugging purposes, hook up a real console to make sure the console port is still working.

Hi Andrew,

Also check if you have java enabled in your browser.

Hope this helps.

Sanjay,
I have the documents you mentioned and have throughly gone through them.

Harry,
I am using either Netscape 6 or IE 5.5.
The webconsole is model J3591A. I have the emulation set to vt100.
In IE, I have the following enabled: Java Console, Java Logging, JIT.

Re: Secure WEb console and blank screen

Hi Andy,

Here's my settings for the web console:

term type vt100
baud rate 9600
Parity/data bits none/8
parity checking disable
Xon/Xoff not selected

Once you "Access console" does "Get history" show you anything?

Is it possible to connect a normal terminal to the console port to see if that works?

Have you verified the serial cable connection from the web console to the system's console port?

Well, this is a case of a SUE (Stupid User Error), or maybe a dumb SA error.
I never connected the serial cable.
Thanks all for your insights. Andy

Hi Andrew,

Check and see if java plugin are installed for the browser you are using. This looks like a problem with java. Can you ping the console with the new ip.

Hope this helps.

Re: Secure WEb console and blank screen

Nah, it's not a stupid user error. Sometimes it just we can't see the forrest for the trees!

Anyway, no one has to know, especially your manager. I'd let mine know how hard I worked, all the research I did, and all the effort I put into making it work!
