Webtool access with a multi-homed Windows client

  • 1.  Webtool access with a multi-homed Windows client

    Posted 10-28-2015 07:59 AM


                I do have a couple of 6510 switches that i cannot access the Webtool from a windows Terminal server.


    I am getting all sort of errors or problems:

    • some times i am able to reach the GUI but it ends abruptly with a session timeout message
    • some time i get JAVA dumps talking about connection timeout
    • sometime the initialisation process hang right after entering the password
    • I never loose a ping packet or have problem with an ssh connection to the switches

    I am trying to access the switch through a Windows terminal server which has 2 network interfaces:

    • 1 toward the corporate network,
    • The other to the private network on which the switches reside directly whitout any router or firewall inbetween.


    I am accessing the windows box through the corporate network in an RDP session.


    I noticed that if i am on the windows box's console, and disable the network interface toward the corporate network, my problem disappear and everything work normally.


    The windows box is: Windows Server 2008 R2 (local firewall disabled)

    One switch is running FOS 7.1.0c, the other is FOS 7.2.1f


    Anyone has an idea to help me solve this issue?

    most probable this is a issue with JRE.


    what is the Java Release you have current running ?


    I suggest to use the search option here in mybrocade and you find a lot of thread about such problem.
