Can't telnet to RILOE2 console

Hi all! I'm trying to connect to our RILOE2 console via telnet. I get prompted for my login and password, which I dutifully type in, and then the console goes all grey and a message appears in the center reading "monitored server console is in graphics mode". I hate trying to use the web interface to connect to the console because it's slow and buggy, so I'd really like to get this to work. I can't find any setting that seems to disable the web interface in favor of the telnet console. What do I need to change?

Thanks!

Nevermind, I'm an idiot; I was connecting to the wrong RILOE2! The one I was hitting was a Windows box, so it couldn't show me a non-graphical console.
