I did have the remote management portion of IPMI working locally and externally but it is now giving me an "Usage: java RConsoleApp <Aster Card IP> <Port>" error message.

This is a Tyan GT20-B7002 barebones server and is running the IPMI firmware version S7002 R4.02

Any ideas?

I even opened up EVERY port externally and disabled firewalls.

Edit: Sep. 14, 2011 Sent Tyan technical support an email. I will update this when I hear back from them.

What client are you using for the remote IPMI? What is the network topology between the client and the server? Are they on the same network or is this remote over the internet or ? – toppledwagon Sep 10 '11 at 3:20
I am using internet explorer for the remote IPMI. It is ASTER's IPMI that comes with Tyan. The server is on the LAN but I am also trying it remotely. Network Topology? – Chris Smith Sep 10 '11 at 5:15
