Considering that these are HP blades, it might be the case that they have reused their Secure Web Console software/hardware to provide the terminal access. I don't know what protocol this uses, but it's better than nothing for remote access, but not as good as conserver. Hopefully you'll be able to find out more if this is what it is using.

I've not used "Secure Web Console", but it may be that it is implemented using IPMI, since according to HP:

"IPMI was initially co-developed by Hewlett-Packard and Intel ® and has been enhanced by NEC and Dell."

It would be interesting to find out tho'...
