I have setup OpenIDM on a server, and I want to access the web UI, however I am only able to access it from the server by using https://localhost:8443/openidmui
I want to be able to access the UI from outside the server, but when I try the connection times out.
I know that some web UIs for other services needs to be enabled for outside use, but I have been unable to find any mention of such a setting for OpenIDM.
So are there a setting I need to enable? or is it just something in my network that is setup wrong and blocking the request?July 23, 2015 at 4:45 pm #4847laurent.bristielParticipant
Try replacing “localhost” by the IP address of your server. Then, if this machine/IP is visible from another machine (check it with “ping” command), you should be able to see OpenIDM UI as well. Otherwise, that might be a network issue or a Firewall.July 23, 2015 at 4:52 pm #4848Mike JangSpectator
In your case, the question is whether something is blocking access to port 8443, such as a firewall.
Apologies if you’ve already taken these steps, but you should first confirm network connectivity. Substitute the IP address of your OpenIDM server for remote_ip
telnet remote_ip 8443
If successful, you’ll see a message such as
Connected to openidm2.example.com.
Escape character is ‘^]’.
I know it works for me when I have a firewall on a remote VM. On that firewall I opened only ports 22 and 8443. As OpenIDM uses Jetty, there’s nothing “special” in terms of that service.

Thanks alot for the help. It was indeed a firewall issue, but the problem was not on the server it self but on a middle layer I had forgotten about.
