As I mentioned, we don't currently use an autologin script to log in to 
the RSC port and drop to the console.  Instead, our standard operating 
procedure is to log in to the RSC any time we find one not already in 
'console pass-through' mode, and leave in console mode when we log out.
(The alternative would be to embed a RSC login ID and password into a 
script used by conserver, and I am not in favor of storing usernames and 
passwords in scripts.)

Here's an example of how you might set up conserver to directly access 
your RSC cards instead of a terminal server hooked up to ttya.  Note 
that 'hostname-RSC' should resolve to the IP address for the conserver 
card in the server, either via /etc/hosts or in DNS.  'conserver0' is 
the name of the primary conserver host managing your consoles.


Hope this helps.
