HTTPS and IPFILTER for Brocade SAN Switches

Two distinct questions here.

1.  I am trying to apply and IPFILTER policy on our SAN Switches.  When I remove HTTP and only allow HTTPS through certain IP address I simply cannot access the switch at all.  I can block other IP addresses from using HTTP but if I remove ALL HTTP access, I cannot access the GUI myself.  I rely on the GUI as it's just easier for me to follow what's going on.

2.  When I create a "secure_ipv4" policy from the Principal switch I receive the error when trying to distribute the policy "IPFILTER is distribution is blocked in VF".  Not sure whey because I created a distrbution policy and added in all of the subordinate switches.  Is this a license issue or something?


Thanks in advance for your replies.

Does no one have an answer to this question?!

I also need some help with Certificate Authority and JAVA within a web browser.  Trying to get the switch to be access only via HTTPS and following the brocade documentation leads me to a dead-end.  Really could use an expert with this.

--->>> Is this a license issue or something?

No Additional License is required.

However ( I'm not 100% sure !!!! ) i think you cannot create a distribution policy if the switch is set in VF mode.

If I'm wrong, ignore my post.
