  I put the noose around the ASMs neck while I was at Cisco... write
me off-list if you want gory details (or search teh archives of this
list ;-)

  iTouch (MRV Communications) InReach gear, Cyclades TS/ACS, and Digi CM
series are all close to each other in pricing, though there are feature 
differences that may interest you. (Some have remote power control features
that integrate the power control with console access in a Java GUI...some
integrate well with a second network conenction (ethernet, modem, 802.11),
and more.

  A new, lower-cost player is OpenGear, and their CM series has recently
passed BREAK testing in my test lab. (If you are interested in which other
gear has been tested, please rtake a look at my console server BREAK-off
pages, http://www.conserver.com/consoles/BREAK-off/breakoff.html

Subject: Terminal Server recommendations

We are looking at replacing the terminal servers we use for console 
connections. We are currently using old Cisco ASMs with no problems but 
you know how old those are!

Any good suggestions for terminal servers that work well with Conserver, 
don't have Sun BREAK issues, and are well priced?
