Hi ,

I am working on a 2.4.x kernel and Dell 1950 servers. 
I have IPMI support included in kernel.

I want access the IPMI over lan. 
Please tell me if I need to have any setting done for that. !!

I want to know if I can use the lanplus or lan interfaces.
Do I need to run any server process on the Machine.  ?

I have a requirement In which I need to power cycle / restart the
machine from a network interface . 
Or May be check the general status of the machine.
Can I do this using ipmitool or ipmish ...  ?
I heard the I can do this using IPMI.

Please guide ?
