Can't manage zero client after moving it to a different network
Scenario:You had the zero client managed by the management console and then moved the zero client to a different network. You can still connect to your desktop VM. You just cannot manage the zero client.
Answer:Since network connectivity is confirmed because you are able to get to your desktop I would suspect a port is being blocked. The PCoIP Management Console uses TCP port 5172 for all management functions to PCoIP Zero Clients and PCoIP Remote Workstation Cards. A good tool to use is Telnet. Telnet is not installed on the management console so you can either add it (sudo yum install telnet -y) or you can use another device with telnet access from the same network that is hosting the management console.
If you run the command telnet x.x.x.x 5172 you should get 1 of 3 responses (where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the zero client in question).
- Connection Refused - meaning the zero client is in a managed state and it is refusing the connection. In this case I know port 5172 is open because the zero client is refusing the connection.
- Connected to 10.0.10.48 - this means the zero client in not in a managed state and it did accept the connection. In this case the zero client is in the Bootstrap managed state.
- Connection timed out - meaning you cannot reach the zero client due to some network condition, device unplugged, port blocked, no route....
