Failed to display a VPM GUI interface from a VPM Overlay Settings on Director. It comes out with the “Edit CLI” screen.

<< Back to Knowledge Search



1. Director failed to display a VPM GUI when clicking on the VPM Overlay Settings Edit button.
2. It comes out with the “Edit CLI” screen but not the VPM GUI :-
3. From the Progress Dialog, you will notice that it shows "Fetching the applets.jar file. This could take a while"



1. The ports on 8082 and 8085 are used by Director as follows:-

  • Director Management Console to Web browser on 8085 (download the JNLP application)
  • Director Management Console to ProxySG on 8082 (for statistics only)
  • Director Management Console to Director on 8082 (for Java WebStart launch)
  • Director appliance to ProxySG on 8082 (getting updated Java Archive (.jar) files after a ProxySG upgrade)

2. Please make sure the access from the client on these two ports are not being blocked. Once the access on ports 8082/8085 is allowed, you should be able to access to the VPM GUI.

3. Please refer to the 000015461 which explains the ports Director uses.
