Updated to support HPE Gen10 Servers.
Tested with a ProLiant G7 server, iLO 3, firmware version 1.94. iLO 4 and 5 not tested.
All features that work under Windows also work under Wine (with the workarounds below):
- Remote display
- Keyboard and mouse input
- Power Switch actions (all)
- Virtual Drives: mount folder (slightly unstable)
- Virtual Drives: mount and boot ISO image (netboot.xyz.iso)
- Virtual Drives: mount and boot USB image (netboot.xyz.img)
- Keyboard shortcuts (all)
- Video recording and playback
Not working at all, even under Windows 10:
- Virtual Drives: mount from URL (HTTP and HTTPS)
What does not
TLS handshake fails with default GnuTLS configuration.
The "Virtual Drives" dropdown menu does not appear.
Installed dotnet462 and corefonts via winetricks.
iLO 3 requires legacy TLS ciphers 3DES and RC4 to be allowed (see documentation). Leveraged the fix for Bug 53344 in Wine >= 7.13 to provide the runtime environment with a GnuTLS priority override file, to include legacy ciphers in the list of allowed ciphers.
Added missing registry keys to allow for enumeration of disks to fix the "Virtual Drives" menu.
What was not tested

Tested on Debian/Whonix with a ProLiant G7 server, iLO 3, firmware version 1.94.

If TLS connections fail with iLO 3, you may have to downgrade GnuTLS-related packages, if they were updated after wine, or wait for the next wine version. Refer to the list of dependencies for the wine packages on your system; for example, on Debian, libcurl3-gnutls was updated after wine 7.14.
If TLS connections fail with iLO 4 or 5, try dotnet471, dotnet472 or dotnet48 together with native d3dcompiler_47 via winetricks.
wine requires ptrace capabilities. If you changed kernel.yama.ptrace_scope or run a hardened distro like Whonix or Kicksecure (see this), capabilities need to be set explicitly for wineserver:
sudo setcap cap_sys_ptrace+eip /opt/wine-stable/bin/wineserver
If your system locale is zh_CN, you may have to add LC_ALL=C to the environment variables when running the app. See bug 47277.
On the choice of .NET Framework version:
HPLOCONS as of version 1.3.1 requires .NET 4.5 or later for TLS 1.1 and 1.2 support.
.NET 4.5.x fails to install via winetricks (as of August 2022), .NET 4.6.x works.
With wine 7.13, .NET 4.7.x and 4.8.x need native d3dcompiler_47 via winetricks to display the GUI correctly.
