Re: Serial consol server

The SCS1600 can be used for this purpose. We use them successfully to connect to HP and CISCO network console devices as well as to older systems that use Serial consoles as management ports. The SCS1600 supports both Telnet and SSH. Though it needs to be noted different devices require different adapters which are listed in the SCS console user's guide appendix.
