Port 443 alone gets me to the ILOM web interface, which is clear.I wonder where you got a list of ports. For a 2200M2 with ELOM, I searched high and low, and found no list. I finally pulled the unit and ran Wireshark. It needs port 8890 and perhaps more.
Searching on "ILOM 8890" found a thread here discussing the issue.
The issue here is definitely ports, since it works from a LAN port on to the server, but not over the internet.
I thought that using another remote machine (Windows XP via RDP for example) would allow one to open the Remote Console from there, but somehow RDP and ILOM/ELOM/SLOM (Integrated/Embedded/Schlepbedded) don't work together. The display can be seen but everything becomes dog slow. A keypress takes 30 seconds to register on the other end at the server.
However, using NoMachine as a remote interface (nxserver on Ubuntu for example) works well except for the mouse which becomes hyper sensitive to the point that it's almost impossible to click anything. Fortunately most installation processes, BIOS interfaces, etc., don't need a mouse or work without one by simply using the tab and arrow keys.
