NAME

       ipmilan - IPMI LAN to System Interface Converter

SYNOPSIS

       ipmilan [-c configfile] [-i ipmidevice] [-d] [-n]

DESCRIPTION

       The  ipmilan daemon allows an IPMI system interface using the OpenIPMI device driver to be
       accessed using the IPMI 1.5 or 2.0 LAN protocol.

       ipmilan supports the full authentication capabilities of the IPMI LAN protocol.

       ipmilan supports multiple IP addresses for fault-tolerance.  Note that messages coming  in
       on an address are always sent back out on the same address they came in.

OPTIONS

       -c config-file
              Set the configuration file to one other than the default of /etc/ipmi_lan.conf

       -n     Stops   the   daemon  from  forking  and  detaching  from the controlling terminal.
              This is useful for running from init.

       -d     Turns on debugging to standard output.  You generally have to use -n with this.

CONFIGURATION

       Configuration is accomplished through the file /etc/ipmi_lan.conf.  A  file  with  another
       name  or path may be specified using the -c option.  See the ipmi_lan config file man page
       for more details.

SECURITY

       ipmilan implements normal IPMI security.  The default is no  access  for  anyone,  so  the
       default  is  pretty  safe,  but be careful what you add, because this is access to control
       your box.  straight and none authorizations are not recommended, you should probably stick
       with md2 or md5.

SIGNALS

       SIGHUP
            ipmilan  should  handle  SIGHUP  and  reread  it's  configuration files.  However, it
            doesn't right now.  It might in the future, for now you will  have  to  kill  it  and
            restart  it.   Clients  should handle reconnecting in this case.  If they don't, they
            are broken.

ERROR OUTPUT

       At startup, all error output goes to stderr.  After that, all error output goes to syslog.

FILES

       /etc/ipmi_lan.conf

SEE ALSO

       ipmi_lan(5),ipmi_ui(1),openipmish(1)

KNOWN PROBLEMS

       Currently, ipmilan does not implement writing the config file.  IPMI  commands  to  change
       configuration  options  are  accepted,  but  the permanent writing of the changes does not
       currently work.
