UDM is basically an abstraction layer for all drivers including inband
and outofband.  In your case, it seems that your tool is inband only
and ssif specific. You can choose to directly talk to the ssif

Per Albert's suggestion, I will not use the UDM model.

My only uncertainty is about giving the local CPU the ability to receive

events from the BMC - while at the same time allowing it to send commands. I've looked but can't seem to find an "event handler" capability, other than SEL functions. Does freeipmi provide such a
