First your iDRAC must be configured.
You need to assign IP from your network DHCP or permanent) and know login and password.
Then you need to use this IP as address in webbrowser and access internal website.
I don't know about the T410, but usually, you would need a license.  The built-in hardware (after you've configured it) only gives you the ability to power-cycle it and see some hardware health metrics.

If you want console access through the idrac, you would I think need a license (about $300 plus per server, last time I checked)

It's still worth getting the license in certain situations - if it's a server at the outer edges of your network, or if it's  more than 2 or 3 hours' drive away, for example.  But if you have more than a few servers, it's better to just get an IP KVM
