Remote access to a Dell 1850

I have a dell 1850. From what I can tell it had a DRAC, but not one that I can pull up a remote terminal on. Seems to only do IPMI over serial.

My question is, how exactly do I get to the console?

I've tried over the LAN. It gets an DHCP address, but I can't connect over network. Not sure if I need some type of console box to realize the connection, but I'm not sure.

it sounds like you have the Remote Access Card which is the default for the 8th gen servers, if you have a DRAC you can hit the ip from your web browser,  the drac is an additional card

Well then,

Do you know if it's possible to move the DRAC from a 2850 to a 1850?

the Drac 4 is the same for these 2 servers, should have no issue
