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…)
