Why a VPN connection: For security reasons, IPMI interfaces are on a protected Private IP address space (RFC-1918). As such, these IP’s are not routable on the internet, and meant only for Private Use.
Being this the case, you need to VPN into our network in order to be able to access your server’s IPMI Interface.
