Pre-sales question: IPMI
Hello! I'm looking at leasing one of the OVH servers which comes with IPMI remote access, probably the SP-64 or SP-128.
I have major concerns about IPMI security. ( for example: http://it.slashdot.org/story/14/06/0...ong-shelf-life )
I have other servers with SoftLayer and with Steadfast. At SoftLayer, IPMI access is behind their VPN, so it's not listening on the Internet. At Steadfast, the administrators are happy to keep my IPMI port disabled, and to enable and disable it as I require. Is either of those the case at OVH?
Good day XanCharb,

There is two way you can access the IPMI connection:
1- Over a Java applet which generate and send you a .jnlp file valid for this session only. (This method let you use keyboard and mouse)
2- Over a webrowser via Serial over LAN that use a temporarly generated user valid for this session only.
