I take it that ipmipower and ipmimonitoring now work?

Ahh, it seems this is also a bug on their systems.  The K_g on the
remote side is all 0's, yet the authentication status: [               1h] = authentication_status.k_g[ 1b]

indicates a K_G is required.  I'll add that to the list for Asus.  I
should also update the workaround to work around this issue as well.
That'll be in the 0.4.4 release.

These last two indicate a potential config problem.  Could you run a --
debug and --debugdump on them?

I know that hte SOL_Conf reading has problems on the ASUS motherboards.
So we're working on that issue too :-)  The default config they have
setup should be fine.
