Privileges issues with VM.Console

Hi everyone,

i've a brand new installation of PVE on a cluster, and i've found this issue: when i assign to a user the following privileges:

VM.PowerMgmt, VM.Backup, VM.Audit, VM.Console

The user can only open the console by opening the VM via hypervisor with double click, then click on "Console" button on the inner menu.

If he tries to open it from the menu on the left (for example with server view, but also in the other views) he receives a timeout error and can't open the console. If i give him Administrator privileges instead, he can open it without any problem

I've tried both Chrome and Firefox, on 3 different workstations, the issue is replicable and always behaves like that

Thanks in advance for the help

UP, anyone has any idea on what's the issue here and how to solve it?

Hi, little update,
this wasn't a PVE fault but due to some misconfiguration on the proxy used to reach the cluster.
