First I've got to say I'm a Linux / Ubuntu novice, so go gentle on me as I'm on day 3.
I've managed to get Ubuntu server Ubuntu 8.04 LTS installed and running on the Poweredge 2850 I bought off ebay. The box will go in a rack at my office but I want to be able to work on it and power on and off from home and I gather that (maybe) IPMI over LAN might be the way to do this, or maybe its something to do with BMC or something?
I want to be able to administer/manage from a client PC at home running XP. I will be configuring the office router to port forward port 80 and 443 to the Ubuntu server running Apache2, and I'm puzzled about how the remote management works (unless it comes on a different port forwarded to a different internal IP)
Thanks for any help
