wishlist #2: Sun iLOM RConsole over ssh

Another thing that would make my life easier; Sun have a fantastic java GUI console redirection tool that you can use with their iLOM to get the system graphical console output. But it works by communicating over a variety of ports that our firewall doesn’t allow, so I can’t use it from home.

Surely there should be an option somewhere to tunnel it all over ssh instead? There must be an easier solution than VNC-ing (over ssh) onto my desktop at work and running the rconsole from there?

(Yes, I could ssh straight in to the ilom and get the text-only console. But it seems a shame to let the lovely graphical version go to waste…)

    If you know what the ports are you want to connect through, you could always tunnel through your work machine and then connect it to Localhost? :)

    Unfortunately, the console is a java webstart app, which is served up pre-configured by the ilom webserver, and I can’t see any way to fool it into connecting to localhost instead :-(
