About two years ago I had to set up a netdump server to debug kernel
hangs and send crash to RH EL support.
I can try to search through the implementation notes I wrote and adapt
to both CentOS and major version 6.x
I was forced to configure it in RH EL 5.4 days because internal disks
cciss drivers didn't support to make a local dump.
Never tried in 6.x versions.

Let me check and come back.
