Configuring the LAN over USB interface manually

The IMM using the LAN over USB interface requires operating-system drivers and other configuration. The firmware update package or Advanced Settings Utility attempt to perform the setup automatically, if needed. If the automatic setup fails or if you prefer to set up the LAN over USB manually, use one of the following processes. For more information about LAN over USB configuration on different operating systems, see the IBM white paper Transitioning to UEFI and IMM on the IBM web site.

Note: Changes are made periodically to the IBM Web site. The actual procedure might vary slightly from what is described in this document.
