Goal

When trying to access the JavaRconsole on X86 Sun Fire[TM] Servers through NAT - Network Address Translation (commonly used in conjunction with firewalls), the Webstart applet may not be able to connect to the ILOM because it embeds its actual IP address in the javaws file, not the IP address that is visible to the client. 

This document describes how to configure your network settings so that iLOM's Java Remote Console can be accessed through a NAT router or firewall.
