libfreeipmi driver APIs will completely change in the next
release. Thats one reason "fish" and tools waited for long time for
network support. Newer APIs are very easy to use and driver
independent. Same tools will work for inband and out-of-band drivers 
transparently. Refer to freeipmi/doc/example/udm-test.c in the CVS.

This means your input field(s) is wrong. You should compare your
values with one of freeipmi's tools (like ipmipower). Bala wrote a
simple UDP server to dump the values for debugging. It will be
included in the next release. First make sure ipmipower, ipmiping
tools work, before you start with your own tool.

With the newer APIs, session_seq, session_id crap all handled
internally by the driver.

| By the way it seems to return < 0 but set errno to Success??
Thanks for reporting, this is a bug. lan_open_session returns without
setting errno properly when ipmi_comp_test fails.  I have fixed it in
the CVS now.
