 slweb(1M)                                                         slweb(1M)

 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      slweb - start the HP-UX hardware event viewer tool (a Web interface)

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]
      Path:   /usr/sbin/diag/contrib

      slweb [-h hostname] [-F]

      slweb -c

      slweb -s {stop|startssl|status|restart}

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      The HP-UX hardware event viewer tool (slweb) can be used to display
      hardware events from log files or raw hexadecimal word pairs.

      The slweb command starts the user interface.  Once started the help
      facility of slweb is available and can be used to learn more about
      slweb by clicking on field labels or column headings.

      The HP-UX hardware event viewer tool user interface uses a Web
      browser.  Executing the slweb command without any options performs the
      following tasks:

           +  create server certificates if needed

           +  start the management Web server if it is not running

           +  start a Web client (browser)

      An attempt will be made to connect to a Netscape Web browser running
      on the X server defined by the DISPLAY environment variable.  If a
      running Netscape client is found, it will be used, otherwise a new
      Netscape session will be initiated.  This will only happen if the
      Netscape process is running the same system as that referenced by the
      DISPLAY variable, unless the -F option is used.

      If slweb is executed without any options, the server will stop
      automatically after a period of inactivity.  If the server is started
      explicitly using slweb -s startssl, it will run until the system is
      rebooted or the server is stopped with slweb -s stop.

    Options    [Toc]    [Back]
      The slweb recognizes the following options:

      -h  hostname   Display events on a remote system ( hostname), using a
                     client on the local system.  The slweb Web server on
                     the remote system must already be running.

      -F             Forces a client browser to be used in less secure ways.
                     Two security features are overridden by the -F option.

 slweb(1M)                                                         slweb(1M)

                     The -F option forces the client browser to be used or
                     started, even if the X-traffic between the X-server and
                     the Netscape browser is not secure.

                     If slweb is executed by root with the -F option, a
                     temporary login bypass key will be generated.  The
                     bypass key allows the user to access the Web interface
                     without having to provide login information again.

                     Only use this option if you are sure the network
                     traffic between the host where Netscape is running, and
                     the host in the DISPLAY variable is secure.

      -c             Forces the creation of new server certificates.  This
                     can be performed if the server's certificates expire,
                     or if the security of the certificates has been
                     compromised.  When new certificates are created, the
                     slweb command will also restart the slweb Web server.

                     The -c option is only available to the user root,
                     because it requires creation of an SSL certificate.

      -s  {stop|startssl|status|restart}
                     The -s option is only available to the user root.

                     stop           stops the running slweb Web server.

                     startssl       starts the slweb Web server, if started
                                    this way, it will run until rebooted or
                                    until stopped with slweb -s stop.

                     status         displays the status of the slweb Web

                     restart        stops and then starts ( startssl) the
                                    slweb Web server.

    Security Certificates    [Toc]    [Back]
      slweb will generate an SSL certificate authority and use that to sign
      a generated SSL certificate.  Because this certificate is self signed,
      your web browser will probably prompt you to see if you want to accept
      this certificate before it connects to the HP-UX hardware event viewer

      It is possible to accept these certificates each time, just for the
      session, or you can accept the certificates on a permanent basis (10
      years), and not have to accept them again later.

      slweb regenerates the certificates when they are not there, if the
      hostname is changed on the system, or when the -c option is used.

    Online Help    [Toc]    [Back]
      Once the HP-UX hardware event viewer is started, the online help
      provides details on how to use the tool.

 RETURN VALUES    [Toc]    [Back]
      Upon completion, slweb returns one of the following values:

      0    Successful.

      1    An error occurred.

 WARNINGS    [Toc]    [Back]
      Accepting a certificate saves an identifier for the certificate in a
      file where the browser is running.  If you reinstall the slweb gui,
      the certificate will be altered, and some browsers report the change
      in id as a potential security violation.

      When this happens, you have to instruct your browser to delete the
      saved certificate.  On Netscape 4.7x this is done by selecting the
      Communicator:Tools:Security Info menu pick.  On the resulting dialog
      box, select the " Certificates:Web Sites area and delete any
      certificates for machine associated with the security violation.
