It works with modern FF but on Linux, with the ice-tea thing. I used Debian 9
I Did not have to edit the jnlp file

Had no luck accessing ipmi with MS Windows or FreeBSD. It is kind-of
ridiculous, of course. IT seems to be the only way that 'works' if you
want to mount a virtual 'ISO'
Maybe try a virtual machine?
