DATACENTER: Serial console concentrator/server



hi All,

What do you think is the "best" solution for aggregrating access to serial 
consoles of 10-25 Sun/UNIX servers? Majority of my servers are Sun 
E250/E450/Netra T1, but there are a few Intel (LB440GX-based gray boxes) 
and Compaq that support console redirect to serial port.

I would like to be able to bind an IP address to each serial port, so that 
one can "telnet <an IP address>" to reach the console. Access control via 
Radius/Tacacs would be nice too.

The solution I am most familiar with is based on the Cisco 2509/2511 access 
servers? But that is alot of $$$ and density beyond 16-ports is not so 
great. What do you think?

Thansk.

Regards,
Joe

ps. Anyone know where I can download Netra T1 Model 150-specific drivers 
(e.g. LOMLite stuff)? I need to reinstall Solaris 7 on a T1 from scratch.
