to be honest, I've never tried it.  our machines came with HP's XC distro,
which includes a console logging/terminal command.  it appears to use the 
telnet interface, though, not ipmi sol.

my naive attempt to use sol gets me "Insufficient privilege level"
(that's for the admin account, which has "OEM" priv level.  over local/open
"ipmi sol info 2" gets me:
Error requesting SOL parameter 'Set In Progress (0)': Invalid command

that's a thread for the local/open ipmi interface.  you don't need it at all
if you use the lan interface.
