[Linux-PowerEdge] racadm5 doesn't support iDRAC8?

I'm trying to get racadm to work with an iDRAC8 Enterprise controller.  
I'm getting the weird error message:

ERROR: Unable to connect to RAC at specified IP address.

I've checked with tcpdump, and I see racadm successfully open a TCP 
connection, and send a SSL Client Hello.  The iDRAC responds by 
immediately closing the connection.

I'm suspecting some kind of SSL issue here, though I can't seem to find 
anything that would let me get logs (from either end...).

I'm using this on a CentOS 6 machine, and I had to manually install the 
openssl098e package.

I have these packages installed:


*All* I want to do is enable the VNC server, without making someone log 
into the web UI and do it.  The redfish interface doesn't seem to have 
an option for this, so I'm stuck with racadm...

Any suggestions on getting racadm working?
