Enabling and viewing the Access log to check whether the client connects to the management server

You can view the Apache HTTP server Access log on the management server to check whether the client connects to the management server. If the client connects, the client's connection problem is probably not a network issue. Network issues include the firewall blocking access, or networks not connecting to each other.
You must first enable the Apache HTTP server Access log before you can view the log.
Disable the log after you view it because the log uses unnecessary CPU resources and hard disk space.
