I have the problem that i can't use noVNC with Proxmox 5.1 and nginx. i always have blank screen but i used this config

but still the same error, if used the adress over port 8006 direct, i have no problems. is there any fix for this issue? because i would not be so nice to open port 8006 permanently. proxmox 4 have no problems with this.

is their any fix for this problem?

best regards,


I tested it here with a fresh installed PVE 5.1, updated to current and it work perfect.

I have only a problem with normal Console. the Console (JS) work perfect, but the normal Console is a blank screen.

any idea why?

best regards,


I can duplicate this problem with Proxmox 5.1-46 and Proxmox 5.1-41. on both systems Proxmox Firewall is off. i can use the Console (JS) but not the normal Console, their is a black screen. if i look netstat -tulpen, i can see that their some ports 5900 - 5903. this ports are you since proxmox 5 or?

thanks for help!
Do you mean with normal console the novnc console?
If yes this is working here too.
I have an Unitymedia DS Lite Internet Connection(IPv6 and shared IPv4). On a normal IPv4 Connection no problems. any ideas why ?

Sometimes i can used the console from my IPv6. But only for a few seconds. If i restarted pveproxy sometimes i have a connection from my IPV6 but only for a few Seconds.

I mean the novnc conaole. The Console (JS) working fine. But VMS only have the normal Console.

Thanks any Help!
