Thanks Gunnar,
I didn’t understand by running webui locally. I am not running on BMC. I am just running in my mac laptop and trying to connect to BMC via browser.

I am trying to use webui but not getting anything working. I might be missing some steps.
I did following.

  1.  npm install in repo directory.
  2.  Recompiled bmcweb with BMCWEB_INSECURE_DISABLE_XSS_PREVENTION on and transferred bmcweb to target.
  3.  Run chrome browser with http://bmc-ip<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__bmc-2Dip&d=DwMDaQ&c=5VD0RTtNlTh3ycd41b3MUw&r=v9MU0Ki9pWnTXCWwjHPVgpnCR80vXkkcrIaqU7USl5g&m=kJtGvuus9oDRupym2EBb90B5bKvSi-pPMLdfIXHUGAM&s=HQJMeAs5VppEftgdpNH7nd7V3Zx4xpf4DEyqto7U7_Q&e=>
  4.  I see blank page. Then tried with https and accepted certificates.
  5.  But still I see page with “refused to connect”

Hi Vijay,

Are you trying to run the webui locally (e.g. npm run-script server and then browse to http://localhost:8080<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__localhost-3A8080&d=DwMDaQ&c=5VD0RTtNlTh3ycd41b3MUw&r=v9MU0Ki9pWnTXCWwjHPVgpnCR80vXkkcrIaqU7USl5g&m=kJtGvuus9oDRupym2EBb90B5bKvSi-pPMLdfIXHUGAM&s=r_P53gY50VmvMsyQPhxD35FdzONyzQNBH3GUYTerV4M&e=> )?

If so, something more like:
npm install
npm run-script server
Go to https://bmc-ip<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__bmc-2Dip&d=DwMDaQ&c=5VD0RTtNlTh3ycd41b3MUw&r=v9MU0Ki9pWnTXCWwjHPVgpnCR80vXkkcrIaqU7USl5g&m=kJtGvuus9oDRupym2EBb90B5bKvSi-pPMLdfIXHUGAM&s=gdm3UjRQnu_XRVgmp5SVt9W82Tl-uoCarovDoHDdD1Y&e=> and accept the certificate
Go to http://localhost:8080<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__localhost-3A8080&d=DwMDaQ&c=5VD0RTtNlTh3ycd41b3MUw&r=v9MU0Ki9pWnTXCWwjHPVgpnCR80vXkkcrIaqU7USl5g&m=kJtGvuus9oDRupym2EBb90B5bKvSi-pPMLdfIXHUGAM&s=r_P53gY50VmvMsyQPhxD35FdzONyzQNBH3GUYTerV4M&e=> (could be running at a different port, check npm run-script server output) and point at bmc-ip

If you are trying to build the webui for the BMC (npm run-script build) and scp the files over, do you need to include the webui package group?


The webui recipe creates the webui directory structure on the BMC.

Please help me what else I need to do. I got 2 warning while installing NPM.

The warnings should not matter.
