Accessing the IMM2 using the LAN over USB interface

Unlike a baseboard management controller, the IMM2 does not require IPMI device drivers or USB daemons for in-band IMM2 communication. Instead, a LAN over USB interface enables in-band communication to the IMM2; the IMM2 hardware on the system board presents an internal Ethernet interface from the IMM2 to the operating system. LAN over USB is also called the USB in-band interface in the IMM2 web interface.

The following table shows the IP addresses for the IMM2 and the host.
