|Issue||RSA Validation Manager 3.0 vadmin tool only allows connection from local host|
When using the vadmin tool in the Utils directory, it is not possible to bind to the external IP address or hostname of machine running the RSA Validation Manager. Only requests to attach to localhost or 127.0.0.1 are successful.
By default, the RSA Validation Manager only allows connection over the administration port ( by default 1221) from the localhost. This is a security measure.
|Resolution||To make the RSA Validation Manger server bind to another network node other instead of localhost, edit the file named ssl.conf in the <VM INSTALL DIR>/ValidationServer/conf directory. Find the following 2 entries and replace them as shown below:|
In this instance the new IP shown should actually be for the network card you wish to bind to.
