Hi I am trying to do REST calls to N9K and am having difficulty.

 

Instructions say - 'After Software VPN connection: Telnet/SSH access to the tool server and virtual network element. If required, to enable nxapi, run 'feature nxapi' on the switch. Use POSTMAN to post objects to the virtual element.'


1/ I have SSH access to N9k and toolbox server from windows PC.

2/ I enable feature nxapi on N9k and confirm running

switch-n9kV2# sh nxapi

nxapi enabled

HTTP Listen on port 80

HTTPS Listen on port 443

 

3/ When I try and use postman or standard HTTP/HTTPS from home PC to N9K sandbox management IP address i keep getting connection refused.

 

When I try and test if port 80/443 is open via telnei to those ports from toolbox server I get  connection refused

 

cisco@toolserver:~$ telnet 10.10.10.51 80

Trying 10.10.10.51...

telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused

cisco@toolserver:~$

 

Any tips?
