I'm looking for a way to start an IDE-R session from a management console running on a Linux / Unix environment. The management console cannot access external machines on port 16994.
I can setup an ssh tunnel to the AMT machine but the local port 16994 cannot be used.
The management console can use port 16992/16993 and already uses that for the wsman soap interface to perform certain operations, and I would like to use the same for starting an IDE-R session.
Question 1 : Is starting an IDE-R session using a soap wsman call possible ? Can we start an IDE-R session using the soap wsman interface by providing the iso paths ? Does anyone have a code sample for that ?
Currently I am under the assumption that third-party management consoles can only start an IDE-R session through the Redirection Library, a C interface. ( A C dynamic library (for Windows) and a C static library (for Linux). I've looked at the various samples (windows and linux) and all of them define a client simply by its hostname. The library doesn't allow a connection to both a hostname and a port (I guess the port is hardcoded to 16994).
Question 2 : Is it possible to use the Redirection Library by specifying both a hostname and a port number ?
I did found a reference to an AMT_RedirectionService that can be used through the soap/wsman interface and that offers a TerminateSession method, but nothing to start an IDER session.
So I guess the main question is, can I start an IDE-R session from a management console that cannot connect to the AMT client on port 19664 ?
