Having this strange problem accessing the web portal of my management interface. The appliance will not respond to the request.... connections get refused. The problem exists only on the management interface.... the data interface continues to process the URL request from clients. Pings from a system outside the management interface's subnet fail.... pings from a system within the same subnet of the management interface are successful, though request for the management portal fail within the same subnet.
The only way that I can get to the web portal is if I directly connect the management interface to a computer's network card, bypassing any switching or routing device. I have reconfigured the management interface with a different ip address on a different subnet, but that resulted in the same problem behavior.
Any ideas as what could be the culprit here.....
