7.77 Limit of 3 Virtual Machine Console Windows with Microsoft Internet Explorer

Microsoft Internet Explorer allows a default maximum of six concurrent WebSocket connections to a single server domain. Each virtual machine console window, or serial console, uses two WebSocket connections. As a result, the maximum number of virtual machine console windows that you can open in Internet Explorer is three.

Workaround: Do one of the following:

  • Refer to the appropriate Microsoft documentation for information on changing the maximum number of concurrent WebSocket connections.

  • Use a different browser, such as Mozilla Firefox.
