Subject: OT: Remote Console for Linux boxes?
Date: Sat, 2 Sep 2006 18:32:39 -0500 (CDT)
Sorry if this is a little OT, but I thought it might be an appropriate 
question for this audience...

Has anyone had much experience with RS232 (serial) <-> Ethernet  adapters? 
Or what do you use to remotely manage a Linux server?

I'm looking for something inexpensive that will give me remote access to 
the  serial port  and hopefully the capability to manually reboot the 
machine (e.g. push the reset button).

I've recently seen how GRUB and the Linux console can be directed to a 
serial port,  and I was quite impressed...

Thanks

-Alex
