Launch the remote console JViewer application by using a supported web browser on your PC to remotely connect to the SBC host console. Remote Console is mainly used to re-install the ConnexIP Operating System or remote access of the host server.
The default network ports used by BMC system controller are listed on the page SBC Core Network Listener Ports. These ports are not configurable and are fixed for use by the BMC. Depending on your network these ports may need to be configured as part of your router or firewall configuration.
The following prerequisites allow you to use your PC as a remote console:
- PC must support Windows XP or later
- PC must support one of the following browsers:
- Internet Explorer 8 (IE) or later
- Safari on Windows
- The PC must be installed with OpenJDK Runtime Environment 6 update 19 or later to support the OpenJDK console
To support network security, IE blocks the website from downloading files to your computer and this creates a problem in opening the remote console using IE8 or later.
