What Is the HI BMC LAN Configuration Setting in the BIOS?


Intel Server Boards and Systems based on Intel 62X Chipset BMC firmware 2.48.ce3e3bd2 and later


Steps to configure the host interface BMC LAN channel


The HI (host interface) BMC LAN configuration provides an alternative way to access the BMC on an Intel® Server Board from the host operating system using an internal channel between the chipset and the BMC.

  5. Press F10 to save changes and reboot
  6. Boot into the host OS (in this example, Windows is used)
  7. Open Network Connections or network adapter settings
  8. Double click on the ethernet device named Remote NDIS based Internet Sharing Device
  9. Configure the IP address and Subnest mask of this device

Additional information

The HI BMC LAN channel is an internal channel between the PCH and BMC on the Intel® Server Board . This provides additional security compared to the KCS (Keyboard Controller Style) channels.
