Console Servers


There are maybe too many options out there. The used Cyclades are the
lowest cost entry point. An ideal solution might be
https://freetserv.github.io/ but some assembly required. I have Lantronix
OOB solutions in my lab. Most modern servers come with some SOL options so
I will assume this is for networking equipment. The modern HTML5 interfaces
are great and really do drop all the legacy Java requirements.
