An external IP address has been dedicated to the IPMI port (motherboard X8DTU-F, Ami IPMI firmware). When I try to initialize the console, I get an error: "Error while initializing SSL for HID socket." Ports 80,443 and 5901 are open in the firewall. Is there something else I need to get going for SSL usage?
There are a few more ports you need to open. You are probably getting the error because the HID port is not open. Please find the port list below:

TCP Ports
HTTP: 80
HTTPS: 443
Video - 5901
Hid – 5900 (Human Interface Device) port is the KBD/mouse port.
CD – 5120

UDP ports:
IPMI: 623
