How do I use IPMI to login to a SuperMicro server?

I have the IPMI IP setup in the BIOS to 192.168.1.222 and connected to our switch

I'm using Putty and IP 192.168.1.222 through SSH 443

Any ideas?  I've tried port 22, 443, 23 - but it just is blank

does the IPMI answer to ping?

IPMI of SuperMicro is known to be buggy, however it is supposed to answer on port 80, be used with browser and default user/pass is ADMIN/ADMIN

We're doing an IP Scan and even thought he dedicated port is connected and lights are moving - no IP comes up

So I understand ping 192.168.1.222  gives nothing?

What do settings in BIOS (Advanced settings -> IPMI settings -> LAN configuration) say?

Supermicro BIOSes sometimes have bug that they stick IPMI to the first DHCP address they ever acquired; have you tried upgrading your BIOS?
