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 con-
              trolling 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  autho-
       rizations  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 perma-
       nent writing of the changes does not currently work.
