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
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
telnet: Unable to connect to remote host: Connection refused
