Remote management and troubleshooting for distributed server racks, server farms, and network devices
MacMall Part #: 279742
Manufacturer Part #: LS50124-R2
Console Servers are ideal for remote management of distributed server farms and racks. Plus theyre great for troubleshooting network appliances such as routers and remote access servers. Simply connect the console management port of each network device to an RJ-45 serial port of a Console Server to manage equipment in-band or out-of-band via a corporate LAN/WAN or dial-in connection. BENEFITS The Console Servers enable you to connect anytime from anywhere. They save significant amounts of time and reduce overall costs by keeping system disruption to a minimum—especially systems with Sun® servers. In the event of an unstable connection, the Console Servers issue a no-break signal on the power cycle to prevent costly Sun server reboots that can bring down all or part of your LAN or WAN. Security features are built in, so you can implement a robust security plan that thwarts unauthorized access. Protocols such as SLIP and PPP (which incorporate PAP and CHAP) permit authorized remote user dial-in connections plus support for RADIUS server environments. RADIUS authentication enables administrators who use Secure Shell (SSH) or Telnet to connect to devices attached to a Console Server. SSH support means network administrators can make secure connections to attached servers, routers, RAIDs, and other devices without passwords and other sensitive configuration details being “sniffed“ from the network. All data traffic between an administrators PC and a Console Server is encrypted. Each Console Server can be configured for SSH v.1 or v.2 or none. You select the level of security your installation needs. The Console Server includes a 10-Mbps RJ-45 network port and a 10-Mbps AUI port. The AUI port enables you to connect to other network media—such as 10BASE2 or fiber—by using a transceiver. Extremely simple to configure, the Console Server reduces setup time. Local or remote upgrades protect your investment and simplify management. At only 1U high, the Console Server takes up the minimum amount of rack space. Choose from servers with 16 or 24 asynchronous RS-232 serial ports. Features: Just connect the console management port of a network device to an RJ-45 serial port of a Console Server for in-band or out-of-band management. Prevent costly reboots for systems that use Sun servers Selectable SSH security levels Included AUI port enables connections to 10BASE2 or fiber with the use of a transceiver Models with 16 or 24 asynchronous RS-232 serial ports.
