Configure Firewall

Hi _vladi_

In our vSphere client H5 plugin, we need to add the dynamic port entry into the firewall of VCSA, is there any option to add the port using the VCSA SSO username?

Thanks

Hi Sujeet,

Can you please describe in more detail the change you need to make and the purpose it would serve? Also, if I understand correctly, you intend to do this at runtime within your plugin, right - how do you plan to do that?

Regards,

Plam

Hi Plam_Dimitrov​,

The plugin has the capability to manage the storage  RAID by managing multiple ESXi hosts.

So using the plugin, we have subscribed to ESXi SFCB create/delete/modify/alert using the static port.

So to deliver the alert/event to the plugin with the updated configuration, we need to add the inbound firewall rule, whenever the user adds the ESXi hosts.

I have used Appliance Management UI to add the firewall entry, but if the user/customer does want to add a specific port there is no option to add it.

vCenter server appliance username and password do not have the rights to add the firewall entry.

So how to open/add a specific port entry in firewall/iptables?

Thanks,

With Regards

Hi Sujeet,

This is not vSphere Client SDK specific and we do not have the information how this can be done. Please ask in the vCenter forum: https://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/vcenter/content?filterID=contentstatus[published]~obje...
