Where to set Password for Rconsole/Pure Ip console?

Posted on 2004-09-21
Last Modified: 2011-08-18
I need access to a remote server via rconsole of pure IP. I have found the remote access control in the server properties and can setup remote access for IP and IPX. The admin password will not work here, where can I set the password?

This is set when the RCONAG6.NLM module is loaded, if the LOAD statement does not specify a password in the command-line.

Check for the existence of a file SYS:SYSTEM\LDRCONAG.NCF and for a call to that file in your AUTOEXEC.NCF

Since you didn't bother to specify a VERSION of NetWare, I'll point you to the NetWare v6.5 (latest rev) documentation --> http://www.novell.com/documentation/nw65/sman_enu/data/aawmtm5.html#aawmtm5

That includes detailed information on how to set up such remote access and your options when doing so.

Or, like I said in another question of yours, see if Remote Manager is up and running.  5.1 had a version of it.  It would be at the IP address of the remote server, on port 8008/8009 (http/https)  That would use the admin login and has access to console screens (not as "nice" as rconj, but maybe adequate for you to get rconag6 configured to use if it needs to be...)

The NetWare v6.5 docs are generally applicable to NetWare v5.1 as far as this particular function goes.
