I should have added that since there is a firewall between our
management machines and the remote server, we have ports 80, 443, and
5900 open to the DRAC network connection to do web-based management
and console use. Port 22 is open to the server network connection and
I use racadm from the server to access the DRAC.

Are there perhaps any other ports that need to be open in order for
the web-based and Java-based management interface to work correctly?
(our version of Java is Sun JRE 1.6 revision 18).
