Accessing HP iLO behind a router using S-NAT
CloudxtnyHost Member, Host Rep
I Anyone know if its possible to expose the iLO network via a firewall using S-NATting? the iLo is accessible via n internal network, but I want to allow access to the console without needing to be on the internal VPN network. Is this possible?
You could just do a source based DNAT. We have implemented such a solution for our Dedicated Servers, which works as a API controllable gateway. The cool thing is, that you can even use a reverse proxy like nginx to handle http(s) while doing source based proxy_pass to the internally operated iLO, which avoids invalid ssl certificates and ugly ciphers.
I was under the impression that the console java / .NET app uses the iLO IP addresss so it will not work if I do that?
Works great for iLO2, iLO3, iLO4 and iLO5 in our environment - easily avoids to setup vpn access for customers
