RConsoleJ for Mac OS X - Get it here

For those of you out there who would rather administer your Netware
boxes
from Apple's Mac OS X, I've managed to get Novell's Java-based remote
server
console "RConsoleJ" running on Mac OS X. I've only tested it on
10.2.2-10.2.4 but it should run on any version that supports Java
1.3.1.

I tested RConsoleJ OS X against my Netware 6 and 5.1 servers with
perfect
results. You can download a Disk image w/ readme from the following
URL. The
package is about 5.5MB.

http://www.scrippscollege.edu/~dept/it/zen/RconsoleJ-OSX-Install.dmg.sit


For those of you interested in running ConsoleOne on Mac OS X... I
have
succeeded in getting it to run, load snapins, etc. but without the
support
of an underlying client it is not of much use. I'm going to take a
look at
the Linux/Unix versions to see if they are more client-independent.

You...are...my...hero! 🙂

Except for a couple of redraw anomalies on the interface it works
great!

Re: RConsoleJ for Mac OS X - Get it here

Jeff,

I tried on 2 OS X.2.4 boxes with public IP's but just got an error in
the
status window. How do I know what settings to check on my 5.1 servers.

Rconsole on my PC works and so does with the Prosoft 5.14 Mac version
of
Rconsole.

Wondering if I need to modify port info?

Thanks!

Tim

Re: RConsoleJ for Mac OS X - Get it here

Rconsole is a different beast then RconJ. The old Rconsole is IPX/SPX
based
where RconJ is IP-based. In order to support RConJ, you need to
load/configure the RCONAG6.nlm on the server. In basic terms:

1) On the server console enter "Rconag6 encrypt" and press enter.
2) you'll be prompted for the password you'd like to assign and, if
you'd
like it stored in the LDRCONAG.ncf. Enter a password and say yes to
putting
it in the ncf file.
3) On the console, type "LDRCONAG"

This will load the Rconag6 nlm with the encrypted password. If you
want it
to start on each boot, add the "LDRCONAG" line to the autoexec.ncf
file.

RconJ (RconsoleJ) will now work.

Worth mentioning, that you have to UNLOAD rconag6 first, if it is
already loaded. 🙂 Then Rconag6 encrypt, unlike REMOTE encrypt for

Remote.nlm

Re: RConsoleJ for Mac OS X - Get it here

Yep, now worked like a charm. I my case Rconag6 was not auto-loaded in
the
autoexec.ncf file, so the instructions were fine for me.

Thanks for helping with my lack of knowledge!

Jeffrey,

Great job.. i had contemplated doing this but somehow never got around
to
actually trying it.. Once again I say.. Great Job!!

You say you got C1 going and loading snapins.. have you tried to run
it on
top of the Prosoft client?? Im not sure if the prosoft client is
REALLY a
true NDS client or not...

Also, if you need any testing help, i'd be glad to lend a hand...

Re: RConsoleJ for Mac OS X - Get it here

I don't think there is any hope for C1 since all versions rely on some

underlying pieces that are just not there on the Mac. Now then, If
Novell would port eDir to Mac OS X (They have a unix variant already)

then getting C1 working is possible.

RconJ was more important to me because the Novell Web Management
portal
console JAVA "screens" section does not work. You can click and view static items but the Java applet version will not run in a Mac
browser.

I'm also happy to see that you are happy with the RconJ package.

Jeff
