IPMITool questions:

I am attempting to establish a serial over LAN console connection to a
remote SuperMicro SYS-5027R.  I am using this connection command from
a FreeBSD-11.1p5 host running mate and using mate terminal to initiate
the connection:

ipmitool -H "$HOST" -U "$UNAME" -I lanplus sol activate

After connecting I am asked for a password.  After accepting the
password I get this:

[SOL Session operational.  Use ~? for help]

However, the resulting session does not respond to any typing or
carriage returns.  If I use the escape sequence for help (~?) then I
get this:

  	Supported escape sequences:
                                   	~.  - terminate connection
        	~^X - suspend ipmitool, but don't restore tty on restart

          	~?  - this message
                                  	~~  - send the escape character by
typing it twice
    	(Note that escapes are only recognized immediately after newline.)

The line wrapping is exactly what appears on the terminal screen.

What do I need to get this to work and present me with a remote ipmi
