One maybe not-so-economical solution would be a small unix box with a serial
connection to the main box. This might be more space than a hardware solution
(unless you spent money on 1U boxes).

>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!
