Console Server Hardware Suggestions

Hi,

 

I am currently using Digi Etherlite device which acts as the serial console server and recently I have been facing a lot of problem with this device. My lab is placed in the office and most of the time I am unable to remotely connect to my pod becasue the device hangs and requires a restart. This might be due to some fault on the device as it is quite old. 

I am looking for a console server hardware that is not too costly and which allows me to connect to my lab over the network.

Please share some brands and models of similar devices which you may know.

    Krishil,

    If you are talking about the Cisco access server for remote lab management, I would recommend you to go for Cisco 2511, which is the cheapest platform. Optionally, you could have a module inserted into one of your existing routers for the same purpose.

  • Surprisingly, ever since I posted this, my Etherlite switch has been working perfectly as it is supposed to [touchwood].

    Thanks HTH
