[Freeipmi-users] Problem pasting data into ipmiconsole

Hi all,

With version 1.2.1-6.el6_5 RPM from CentOS 6, when I ran 'ipmiconsole'
and pasted in a fairly small amount of data (maybe 15 or so
characters), I got "[error received]: excess retransmissions sent".  I
got a similar issue when writing about that much data from a Python
script using libipmiconsole.  I figured this means I should move on to
a newer version.

With version 1.4.3, which I built from source with debugging enabled,
it seems like I need to paste a bit more data to trigger problems.  In
this case, I don't get an error like the above, instead things just
seem to get "stuck": I never seem to get a response from the remote
system, but sending an escape sequence still works.

I started ipmiconsole, pasted " 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0" (54 characters long), then after a few seconds I used
".." to terminate:

$ [...]/freeipmi-1.4.3/ipmiconsole/ipmiconsole -h hostname -u admin -p calvin  
-e . --debug --debugfile
[SOL established]

[closing the connection]

The target is a Dell iDRAC7 with firmware version 1.56.55.

I put some of the log file that was generated up at (after replacing
the hostname with "hostname").  If you go to line 889
this seems to be the part that relates to when I pasted in the text.
It seems that ipmiconsole keeps re-sending the data and the iDRAC
keeps responding with NACKs.  The entire log contains 2000 of these

(ipmiconsole_processing.c, _sol_bmc_to_remote_console_packet, 2672): 
hostname=hostname; protocol_state=9h: SOL packet NACKED: 
accepted_character_count: accepted_character_count = 0,  
c->session.sol_input_character_data_len = 54

Thanks in advance,
