Access nodes using HTTP, SSH, and Telnet

Updated: March 19, 2018

This Orion Platform topic applies to the highlighted products:


To access nodes using protocols for remote device access, you can use in-product browser links to external third party tools using URIs, or use the built-in SSH client in the Orion Web Console.

Access nodes with third-party tools

The Orion Web Console supports the use of HTTP, SSH, and Telnet protocols for remote device access if associated applications like PuTTy and FiSSH on your Orion server are properly registered.

For more information, search the MSDN online help for "Registering an Application to a URI Scheme".

To use the remote access applications, web browser integration for the user account must be enabled. Navigate to the user account, and ensure Allow Browser Integration is set to Yes.

Launch remote access applications from Node Details widgets. These applications are launched on the client, and so the network communication is initiated from the client that launched the tool.

Web-based SSH

You can access network devices and servers using SSH through a web-based feature. Through the node details page, locate the Management resource, and click SSH. A web-based terminal launches providing an SSH direct terminal connection. You can use SSH commands to modify device settings and troubleshoot server issues.

The SSH session opens from the server that polls the node. If a node is managed by an additional polling engine, the session is opened from the additional polling engine to the device.

The web-based SSH supports all servers with SSH access capable and configured, including Linux hosts, virtual machines, switches, routers, and firewalls.

  • The server or network device must be reachable by the Orion server.
  • Web-based SSH supports SSH2.
  • SSH requires that you open port 22.
