This is a question that gets asked periodically. There may be more complete answers out there, but if I recall there isn't any existing "easy" way. Short of writing your own windows terminal program that speaks the conserved protocol, I would recommend setting up inetd on a system on a range of ports, and gave each port connection invoke a different console command to that ports right host. I'm not sure the console command will work this way, but it shouldn't be hard to make work I wouldn't think. 

Good luck.

I just installed conserver to log and manage the output of 50 different devices. It works very nicely and I'm very happy with the results but I've been asked for a way for Windows users to connect to those devices through a mixture of typical Windows-based terminal software (PuTTY, Tera Term etc.,).

Right now, I'm using console to connect:

$ console -M <IP address> -p <port> <console name>

Which takes me straight to the requested terminal. Is there any way I can achieve similar results without using console?
