Only the first port of any card is available for LAN console during the install phase. Once you can connect to the machine and select the LAN console in service tools and assign it the address then you can use any port that is valid. Attempts to use invalid ports will display the message: "Selected port is not full LAN Console Capable."

It does use bootp and only the LAN console PC can properly answer that request during initial config. (visions of a humpback wale and a StarTrek movie come to mind....)
