A bit of searching leads me to believe that they are Digi Etherlite 16 or
160 terminal servers. The only catch I see is that they may only support
Digi Realport connections, as the spec sheet mentions several times that
all serial ports share a common TCP/IP connection.
Interesting...I don't really need a spare right now, but it's something to
keep in mind (since I can live with Realport-only access).
I'd love to run across one of the RS-422 models.
