here's a config file that i hope fits your situation:

    access * { trusted; }
    default * { master localhost; logfile /var/consoles/&;
		rw *; type host; port 23; }
    console machinea { host hosta; }
    console machineb { host hostb; }

you can add more ips/hostnames/blocks to the trusted list in case you
aren't connecting via the loopback interface.  and fix up the
machine[ab]/host[ab] stuff to match the right hostnames and/or ip
addresses for accessing things.  and tweak logfile, if
necessary...basically double-check them all, but the general ideas here
should get you going.

so everyone knows, there are sample config files in conserver.cf/samples
that can help explain the config file and it's possibilities.  the
situation above is a bit different because it uses various ip addresses
instead of various port numbers for accessing the serial ports, but i
wanted to mention it.
