In order to do LAN communication one must first locally configure IPMI on
the server.  You can configure by doing ipmi-config --checkout.  That will
output a config file for you (typically output to stdout, you can redirect
to a file or use one of the options to output to a specific file).  Edit
this file with appropriate config information, then commit it back to the

The primary FreeIPMI manpage provides a broad overview for how to setup and
configure things and pointers to other manpages on specifics.  If you feel
it requires additional information, plmk.
