Connecting to remote console on a DL380 G5 from macOS

I got hold of a decomissioned DL380 G5 which I'm setting up as a home lab and have some issues figuring out how to take advantage of the remote console offered by ILO 2.

Using a Mac my options seem limited to using the Remote Console Java Applet - which is a problem when all browser except IE have recently dropped support for Java Applets.

Does anyone have a solution to accessing the remote console on this server, from a Mac?

Thanks
