i just took a quick look at pages 45 through 49 of that CM4000 user
manual.  i'd suggest setting the access type to "Raw TCP" and having
conserver connect on ports 4000+n.  the rfc 2217 stuff doesn't seem
right for conserver purposes (conserver certainly doesn't talk it so
there might be some weirdness there).  the implication (based on the
manual) is that there won't be a login prompt using raw tcp.

there's my 2 cents.  ;-)
