F025/ F48 - OBD Probing - Found 2 Ethernet Devices LEAR and NVIDIA

While coding my F48 I fired up WireShark (packet sniffer) after I connected the OBD/Ethernet Cable to my laptop and noticed that two MAC Addresses were broadcasting DHCP Requests.

It appears that there is a built in ethernet switch inside the vehicle, with at least 3 ports, one for each MAC and one for the OBD which gave me a connection speed of 100Mbps FDX.

1) 00:1a:371:XX:XX Manufacturer: LEAR
2) 00:04:4B:3F:XX:XX Manufacturer: NVIDIA

The first MAC seems to be the interface to the different ECUs to allow coding over TCP/6801 via E-SYS.

The second MAC might be the Navi / HU_ENTRYNAV?? Anyone know?

I set my Ethernet on my laptop to and fired up a DHCP Server and both MACs obtained an IP Addresses from my laptop right away. The LEAR got and the NVIDIA got The first does not respond to pings but the second one does, the NVIDIA.

Here is what I want to test out
The NVIDIA one is the mystery, but it is probably the iDrive as I do know for a fact that it is a Linux based system with TCP/IP Enabled, Web Server, and lots of other open source software installed.

1) Port scan and see what ports are open
2) Find the built in webserver - there should be one as IPCI_WEBSERVER is set to aktiv/werte 01 by default.
3) Turn on Internet Sharing on my laptop via the Ethernet NIC and see if the BMW ConnectedDrive apps are able to connect to the internet.
4) Sniff the NVIDIA traffic as it connects to the internet (if it does).
5) Shell Access??
6) Find any other interesting items

Does anyone know any more details about this, or perhaps even a 3rd MAC addressed that I may have missed?
