A good resource regarding the BREAK problem ...
http://www-fr.cisco.com/warp/public/770/fn-tsbreak.html
I have just order a few NUD4273 "non-aborting serial console adapter" from 
Micro Warehouse. I should get them by Tuesday. I will let you know if they

Other good resources for console terminal servers ...
