Additional serial ports for DL380G4

I need to add two additional serial ports to a DL380 G4. As HP don't seem to have a suitable option can anyone recommend a thrd party product to do the job?

It's not necessary to use a 64bit, 133mhz card. It just requires a card which will fit into a 3.3v slot.

64bit, 133mhz is the speed the slot is capable of, but not necessarily the type of slot.
The truth is out there, but I forgot the URL..

I have used a rocketport USB serial hub on a few systems. This is a USB device that will provide 4 serail ports.

Hi Terry

You can also use "USB to Serial Port Convertors" to get two additional serial ports.

The http://www.softio.com/ic0631kb.htm card is much expencive I guess. I use cheaper http://www.softio.com/ic0607kb.htm. I think that is a nice solution.
