Did your vendor commit that this would work?  Below is a quote from the
V5R1 System Handbook:

<start quote>
The console on LAN options require a dedicated LAN adapter. A #0367
Operations Console PCI Cable will also be added to the order by the
marketing configurator. One #0367 Operations Console PCI Cable is
required for Console on LAN.
<end quote>

I believe that the LAN console requires a dedicated Ethernet or Token
Ring connection.  It cannot be used for normal operations.  I think that
this has been well documented.  I wish I had better news, but I don't
think that you will get this to work under V5R1.  If the direct cable
functions, you may need to uninstall the Ethernet card as a console and
use the cable function.
