Description

Integrated Remote Console

Java Integrated Remote Console

The Java integrated remote console provides two access modes:

  • The private mode allows only one local user or VNC user to access and perform operations on the server through the iBMC.

  • The shared mode allows two local users or up to 5 VNC users to simultaneously access and perform operations on the server through the iBMC. Each user can view the operations performed by the other user.

The Integrated Remote Console allows you to:

  • Adjust screen to your preferences using the floating buttons, screen zoom buttons, mouse buttons, and Image Clarity slider.
  • Set the input device using the combination key button, keyboard indicators and layout buttons.
  • Control the server OS using the power control buttons and records operations performed on the OS using the video recording button.
  • Mount a physical DVD drive, FDD, image file, or local folder.
  • Make a DVD or software image file using the image creation button.
NOTE:

The Java integrated remote console requires Java Runtime Environment (JRE) to be installed. Click here to download it. Click More information for information about how to rectify common problems of the remote console.

HTML5 Integrated Remote Console

The HTML5 integrated remote console provides two access modes:

  • The private mode allows only one local user or VNC user to access and perform operations on the server through the iBMC.

  • The shared mode allows two local users or up to 5 VNC users to simultaneously access and perform operations on the server through the iBMC. Each user can view the operations performed by the other user.

The HTML5 Integrated Remote Console allows you to:

  • Adjust screen to your preferences using the floating buttons, screen zoom buttons, mouse buttons, and Image Clarity slider.
  • Set the input device using the combination key button and keyboard layout buttons.
  • Control the server OS using the power control buttons and records operations performed on the OS using the video recording button.
  • Mount an image file or local folder using the DVD and FDD buttons.

Independent Remote Console

Download

Independent Remote Console (IRC) allows users to access and manage the server in real time. The IRC does not depend on the browser, OS, or JRE version.

Remote Console Settings

Timeout Period (min)

Maximum idle time (in minutes) after the last operation (including data read operations on the virtual CD-ROM drive) on the remote console. If no operation is performed within the specified time, the system automatically disconnects from the remote console.

Value range: 0 to 480

The value 0 indicates unlimited time.

  • The default timeout period is 60 minutes for iBMC V328 and later.
  • The default timeout period is 0 for the iBMC versions earlier than V328.

This parameter cannot be empty.

Maximum Sessions

Maximum number of users who are allowed to use the remote console to connect to the server system. This parameter has a fixed value of 2.

Active Sessions

Number of users who are concurrently connected to the server by using the remote console.

You can click the number to switch to the Online Users page and view information about the users.

Encryption

Function for encrypting KVM data before transmission.

If this function is enabled, KVM data is encrypted by using the AES128 algorithm before being transmitted between the server and the client.

By default, KVM data encryption is disabled. For security purposes, enable this function.

NOTE:

KVM encryption can be disabled only after VMM encryption is disabled and saved.

Enable local KVM

Function for enabling or disabling the local KVM.

  • If Enable local KVM is selected, both an external monitor connected through a VGA port and the Remote Virtual Console can be used to access the server.
  • If Enable local KVM is not selected, the external monitor cannot be used to access the server. You can use only the Remote Virtual Console to access the server.

By default, Enable local KVM is selected.

Persistent Virtual Keyboard and Mouse

Function for enabling or disabling persistent keyboard and mouse connections.

  • If this function is enabled, the iBMC virtual keyboard and mouse are always connected to the iBMC UHCI USB controller.
  • If this function is disabled, the iBMC virtual keyboard and mouse are dynamically connected to the iBMC UHCI controller only when a Remote Console application is started and connected to the iBMC. This allows energy savings when the server OS is idle and no virtual USB keyboard and mouse are connected.

By default, Persistent Virtual Keyboard and Mouse is selected.

Virtual Media

Maximum Sessions

Maximum number of concurrent users who are allowed to use the virtual media (virtual DVD-ROM drive or floppy disk drive) of the Remote Virtual Console. This parameter has a fixed value of 1.

Active Sessions

Number of users who are using the virtual media (virtual DVD-ROM drive or floppy disk drive) of the Remote Virtual Console.

You can click the number to switch to the Online Users page and view information about the users.

Encryption

Function for encrypting virtual media data before transmission.

If this function is enabled, virtual media data is encrypted by using the AES128 algorithm before being transmitted between the server and the client.

By default, virtual media encryption is disabled. For security purposes, enable this function.

NOTE:

VMM encryption can be enabled only after KVM encryption is enabled and saved.

VNC Service

The VNC service allows you to connect to the server OS and perform operations on the keyboard, video, and mouse of the server.

NOTE:

Only V5 servers support the VNC service.

Timeout Period (min)

Maximum idle time (in minutes) after the last operation on the VNC interface. If no operation is performed within the specified time, the system automatically disconnects from the VNC interface.

Value range: 0 to 480

  • The default timeout period is 0 for the iBMC versions earlier than V328.

The value 0 indicates unlimited time.

Keyboard layout of the OS controlled by the VNC.

Value:

  • Japanese
  • English

Default value: Japanese

VNC Password

Password for logging in to the VNC interface.

Validity period of the VNC password.

Login Rules

Login rules applied to VNC users.

Click View login rules to view the login rules configured.

SSL Encryption

Function for enabling or disabling SSL encryption.

Enable this function for security purposes. If SSL encryption is disabled, the VNC client starts the Remote Frame Buffer (RFB) process.

NOTE:

If SSL encryption is enabled, only the VNC clients with SSL encryption enabled can connect to the server OS. If the VNC client does not provide the SSL encryption option, use an SSL tunneling application to implement SSL encryption.

By default, SSL Encryption is selected.

Maximum Sessions

Maximum number of users who are allowed to access the VNC interface. This parameter has a fixed value of 5.

Active Sessions

Number of users who are concurrently accessing the VNC interface.

You can click the number to switch to the Online Users page and view information about the users.

Table 3-68 lists the operating systems (OSs), web browsers, and Java running environment (JRE) required for using the Remote Virtual Console.
NOTE:
  • If the language of the browser you use to log in to the iBMC WebUI is not Chinese, English, or Japanese, upgrade the iBMC to 2.60 or later. Otherwise, the login page may fail to display.

  • To download the JRE of a required version, visit the official website of the software.
  • If the JRE version is 1.7 or 1.8 and the remote console application is stopped when you attempt to start it, refer to Failed to Open the Remote Virtual Console.
