Why should character coding/encoding
values be set ?
The character coding/encoding values should be set to enable the OpUtils user to view valid values from the SNMP Agent in the OpUtils Client. Hence the user should set the character coding/encoding value based on the language version of the SNMP Agent queried by the User. For example if OpUtils is running in a Chinese machine,the character coding/encoding should be set to GB18030 or GB2312. Hence, values fetched from the SNMP Agent will be displayed in Chinese for all the tools.
How to set encoding values
Step 1 : Click the General tab.
Step 2 : Choose encoding values
from the Character Coding/Encoding
list box based on the language where the OpUtils Server runs. The list
box holds all the supported coding/encoding values supported in the OpUtils
Step 3 : Click Save to save the Character Coding/Encoding. If the specified character coding/encoding is present in the server machine, it will be saved or else the default value is set. Also ensure your browser supports the specified character coding.
Ensure the web-browser used for accessing OpUtils client supports the specified character coding/encoding.
Configuring Log Level
OpUtils supports the following log levels:
SEVERE: Logs only the important events.
WARNING: This is the default option. Logs both the important and warning events.
INFO: Logs all the events. This is useful for debugging purposes. If this option is selected, you will get a warning message while logging into the client as it consumes more disk space.
To configure the log level, select the required log level from the Log Level combo box under the General tab.
Configuring Client Startup
Whenever OpUtils is started, the client is launched in the default browser. If you wish to disable launching the client, clear the "Open the client upon successful server startup" option available under the General tab.
Configuring Web Server Port
OpUtils, by default uses port 7080 to start the web server. If you wish to change the port to a different number and to enable secured communication, follow the steps below:
Click General tab
Change the port number to a desired value.
Select "Enable Secured Communication" to enable HTTPS
Click Save to save the changes.
Note: Change in Web Server Port and mode of communication, requires a restart of Oputils.
Configuring VNC Ports
OpUtils enables connecting to devices through VNC for troubleshooting purposes. By defaylt, it connects to the VNC using port 5800. You can change the VNC Port that OpUtils uses to establish a VNC connection with the devices from here.
