IPMIPING(8)			System Commands			   IPMIPING(8)

NAME
       ipmiping	 - send	IPMI Get Authentication	Capabilitiy request to network
       hosts

SYNOPSIS
       ipmiping	[OPTION...] destination

DESCRIPTION
       ipmiping	uses the IPMI Get Channel Authentication Capabilities  request
       datagram	to elicit an IPMI Get Channel Authentication Capabilitiesl re-
       sponse from a remote host. The utility can be used to verify if	a  re-
       mote  host  supports IPMI. The initial starting sequence	number will be
       randomized.

       ipmiping	will return 0 to the environment if it receives	atleast	1  re-
       sponse from the remote host. Otherwise, it exists with a	value of 1.

OPTIONS
       The following options are available

       -h     Output help menu.

       -V     Output version.

       -c count
	      Stop after sending count packets.

       -i interval
	      Wait  interval  seconds between sending each packet. The default
	      is to wait for one second	between	each packet.

       -I interface address
	      Set source address to specified interface	address. Argument  may
	      be numeric IP address or name of device.

       -t timeout
	      Time  to	wait  for a response, in seconds. Default is five sec-
	      onds.

       -v     Verbose output.

       -s num Specify an initial starting sequence number. The default	is  to
	      use a random initial sequence number.

       -d     Turn on debugging.

       -r version
	      Specify IPMI version. Available options are "1.5"	and "2.0". De-
	      fault is to use "1.5". Note that packets	will  always  be  sent
	      with  the	 IPMI  1.5 protocol, but IPMI 1.5 vs IPMI 2.0 relevant
	      fields will be communicated in the  Get  Channel	Authentication
	      Capabilities datagram depending on user choice.

KNOWN ISSUES
       It has been observed that some remote BMCs can get "confused" and delay
       packet responses	if duplicate packets (with duplicate sequence numbers)
       are  sent  in succession	very quickly. There is no known	way to cleanly
       deal with a "confused" BMC other	than the wait awhile.

       Unlike ping(8), local  network  devicess	 (e.g.	127.0.0.1)  cannot  be
       "pinged".
