Please see my original post at the bottom.
Joe and Forrest suggested HP's Web Console Manager. I checked out the web site and it doesn't look like it supports anything other than HP 9000 and 3000 equipment.
Bill suggested looking at Arula's SecureConsole product. Checked that out and it doesn't look too bad. I will admit, though, that it looks like a Cadillac when all we need is a Geo. I did email them to request a price quote. Might follow up the email with a request to "borrow" one unit to try before we buy.
I am still leaning towards the Versalynx One Port Term Server. Have emailed them with a request to try before we buy.
Thanks again for the inputs, y'all.

Subject: [Sunhelp] One Port Term Servers?
I have a bunch of Sun Ultra 5's that are at remote locations throughout the
U.S. Right now, none of them provide for any connection via the console
port. So, if there is any issue where I would need to get to the OBP, I'm
out of luck. Have been investigating the possibility of hooking up a 4 port
term server to each box's console port. I know this will work cuz we've done
it for some boxes here. In my research, I've run across the Versalynx One
Port Terminal Server. Has anyone used this product? If so, could you please
let me know what your experience is with it. It is only $349 and I'm tempted
to buy just one to test it out, but why even bother if someone here can give
me a thumbs up or down!
Thanks in advance for any/all info.
