RE: linux blades, serial access

Considering that these are HP blades, it might be the case that they have reused their Secure Web Console software/hardware to provide the terminal access.  I don't know what protocol this uses, but it's better than nothing for remote access, but not as good as conserver.  Hopefully you'll be able to find out more if this is what it is using.

I hope that this helps,

This depends entirely on how HP have implemented the console access, 
which means you will probably have to do some detective work (e.g. 
sniffin the network, spying on the console client, etc.).  If it is 
IPMI, then see this:


If it's not IPMI, then it's probably real serial lines, and you will 
have to work out how to get at them..
