It's either being blocked, or it's in use already.

Also check that a firewall rule is defined on the host.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for responding.

The strange thing is I can get some kind of connection when configure the serial port for telnet access.

The firewall is as follows:

Andrew,

Are you saying that the port 9009 may be in use already?

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

I have tried port 9009 on both telnet and https://.

On telnet I do get a connection, however when I try to browse to https://64.186.XX.XX:9009 I get nothing.

Andrew,

Just to make myself clear, I configured the port with telnet://64.187.XX.XX:9009 and I wasnt refused a telnet connection. However, when I configured the serial port with https://64.187.XX.XX:9009 I got a blank page when I tried to browse to https://64.187.XX.XX:9009

If you select https:// and select the Connected Button do you get an error ?

That is correct - not supported.

See docs above.

Use telnet.

Hi Andrew,

My reference is on page 32 of the attached pdf

The Page 32 I'm looking at does not show any reference to configuring VM Serial Port re-direction via https:// !!!

or telnet!

Use one of the supported browsers to access the UCS Director instance that you deployed to perform next set of instructions

e.g. access it via it's IP Address on the LAN

As this was an OVF that was Imported, I also assume you must have added the serial port?

Andrew,

Yes I did add the serial port.

In the doc, it mentions accessing the UCS via web browser with an ip address. I assume I therefore needed to add serial port and configure the connection for http or https...

Did you notice this page from the doc?

Yes, that means put

https://192.168.110.61:443/

in your Web Browser.

Not define a serial port on the VM!

The VM must have be designed and support for a serial port, in the VM, to output to a serial port!

You cannot just Add a Serial Port, and hope the data comes out, to telnet or a browser!

Ahhhh,

I get that but the VM sits on a server/host in the cloud. Therefore, to accces the VM, will I not need to go through the host and connect through a port?

I know the above statement might sound confusing, but what I'm trying to say is that the ip address I assign to VM must be the public address of the host, in this case, 64.187.XX.XX followed by a port number - similar to the way I access routers, i.e telnet://64.187.XX.XX:9009

Does that make sense?

Andrew,

It may well be I need to create a Windows VM and connect to the UCS via the Windows VM? That is to say RDP into the Windows VM and open a browser from there and connect to the UCS?

Have created a link showing novices how to create a Windows VM and connect to it via RDP?

That very much depends on how the network is configured....

and what networking you have...

traditionally, if I was using it on a local LAN, that appliance would be accessible via the LAN, because all the other devices and workstations are on the same LAN.

If your VMs DO NOT HAVE Public IP Addresses, or NAT which can access those internal IP Addresses, you will indeed have to connect to a VM, on the network, using RDP, and then Access from that VM.

Adding telnet:// and https:// (not supported) is not the method.

Thanks for getting back to me.

I have created a virtual Windows 7 machine. Can you let me know how to access the newly created VM?

Put the following in your web browser

https://192.168.110.61:443/

in your Web Browser.

Assuming the VM is on the same subnet network, and physical /virtual network!

Use a Remote Desktop Connection to the VM (make sure Remote Desktop Connection is enabled!)

or connect through the console of the vSphere Client or Web Client.
