RS232 to USB converter

I have a ML370 G3 and a R3000XR UPS. The UPS only has a RS232 management port. I want to connect the UPS to the ML370 but both RS232 ports on the server are used. Since I know that all USB converters are not created equal, can anyone recommend a brand of converter that they know will work for this situation?

Thanks

Maybe I should mention I'm running Fedora 8 using HP Power Manager.

Richard:

We have a number of RHEL4 ML350 systems deployed, and use a lot of the RS232-USB converters. My experience has been that they all seem to work about the same. It's more a function of the components inside the device (which will vary even within the same model) than the brand itself.

If you really wanted to be diligent, you could look through http://www.qbik.ch/usb/devices/showdevcat.php?id=12
