We are using conserver to manage the serial ports on our RSC cards, but 
we're not doing anything particularly interesting with them.  We treat 
them as regular console ports, attached to Cisco 32-port async serial 
cards in 2600/3600 chassis.  It would be nice if we had a script which 
would automatically log in to the RSC card and switch to the redirected 
console connection, but it hasn't been enough of an annoyance to 
actually automate the process.

Were you, perhaps, referring to the use of conserver to manage each RSC 
card like a single-port console server, via telnet?
