Peppercon eRIC EXPRESS card.
Remote Management Board. Access over IP
Remote Management Solution eRIC express is a KVM-over-IP PCI card that provides browser-based remote, unblocked, BIOS-level access and control to any server with maximum security, stability and speed. It allows administrators to perform a variety of remote management tasks (e.g. set passwords and security, rename servers, change IP address, etc.) eRIC express is a PCI card that enables IT administrators to remotely access and control a server over the IP network with BIOS level functionality. It is completely hardware and OS independent and allows users to troubleshoot and reconfigure servers even when servers are down. eRIC express requires no client software on the remote user side and supports standard browsers such as Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. Since it operates at the BIOS level, server access is available even if the server OS fails. An integrated modem allows emergency access when the network or internet is unavailable. Its combination of KVM encryption, 256-bit SSLv3/TLSv1 and certification protects servers from unauthorized access. As the eRIC express is not a software but a hardware solution, it is much more powerful: OS and hardware independent eRIC express can be used to manage any type of server running any OS, whether Intel, Sun, PowerPC running Windows, Linux, Solaris, Novell, etc. State-independent / Agent-less eRIC express does not require the managed server OS to be up and running, nor does it require any special software to be installed on the managed server. Out-of-Band Even if the managed servers own network connection is unavailable, it can still be managed through eRIC express. BIOS-level access Even if the server is hung at boot up, requires booting to safe mode, or requires system BIOS parameters to be altered, eRIC express still works flawlessly to enable these configurations to be made.

eRIC express requires no proprietary software to be installed on clients for access. It is accessible via any major web browser including: Internet Explorer, Netscape, and Firefox. Currently, eRIC express requires a Java-enabled browser. With eRIC express, administrators can perform a variety of remote management tasks (set passwords and security, rename servers, change IP address, etc.). NOTE: Remote management requires Java Runtime Environment v1.4.x or greater.
