Issue with IBM Blade server

We have an IBM blade server 8730 and it seems to be only using two physical nics on the back of the system.  We have a total of 3 blades installed and we have 4 physical nic ports per blade.  We have ESX installed on all three and we have no experience with blade servers.  We think its doing some sort of multiplexing inside and may be virtual and need to setup more nics.  How is this done?  We were guessing putty into the unit and add more addresses to the nics but is that the correct way and how it that accomplished?  We dont see anything inside for the nics when we putty into the unit.  Is there a command we can use to show the nic information and assign more addresses?

Thanks
