Setting the Web API module parameters

This module activates the SDK for using web services, which is required to integrate with BCM. Loading this module opens the respective port and the calls to the web services are accepted.


Default Value


Server Port


Defines the TCP port dedicated to the web services.

Listening Addresses,::

Comma separated list of local addresses (ipv4 and/or ipv6) on which we will listen. By default, addresses are,::, which means listen on all IPV4 and IPV6 addresses.

Trusted Address


Defines a number of IP addresses from which the local agent is to accept communication in addition to its relay. This allow NAT and VPN communication to work within in the network and the BCM agent, as it recognizes VPN addresses also. Trusted addresses may be entered as single IP addresses or in form of address ranges:

  • Dotted notation, for example, or 2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7334
  • With the short or complete network name such as scotty or
  • A mixture of both:,2001:db8:85a3::8a2e:370:7334, .Several ranges must be separated by a comma (,) or a semi colon (;).

When this parameter is empty, the Web Service server accepts all incoming connections with a valid BMC Client Management login. If you set one or more IP addresses in this field, then only these IP addresses are allowed for communication; all incoming connections from other IP addresses are refused.
