You can launch the virtual console using the iDRAC7 Web Interface or a URL.
While launching Virtual Console using 32-bit or 64-bit IE browsers, the required plug-in (Java or ActiveX) is available in the respective browser. The Internet Options settings are common for both the browsers.
While launching the Virtual Console using Java plug-in, occasionally you may see a Java compilation error. To resolve this, go to Java control panel > General > Network Settings and select Direct Connection.
If the Virtual Console is configured to use ActiveX plug-in, it may not launch the first time. This is because of the slow network connection and the temporary credentials (that Virtual Console uses to connect) timeout is two minutes. The ActiveX client plug-in download time may exceed this time. After the plug-in is successfully downloaded, you can launch the Virtual Console normally.
When you launch Virtual Console for the first time using IE8 with ActiveX plug-in, a " Certificate Error: Navigation Blocked" message may be displayed. Click Continue to this website and then click Install to install ActiveX controls on the Security Warning window. The Virtual Console session is launched.
