Re: [Q] How to use conserver for raw DRAC/ILO/ILOM IP networked server?

even with DRAC, you can use serial redirection;  usually com2 is redirected
to the drac, then you can ssh in and access the serial port (I forget the
comand you issue once you have SSH'd into the drac)  

It's possible to configure conserver with ssh rather than telnet, which
sounds like what you'd need to do here;  I don't have instructions, though,
as I prefer to save the hundred bucks or whatever and get a server
without the DRAC.

(and while I've seen plenty of desktops without db9 serial ports, every
one of those desktop motherboards that i've seen had serial headers on 
the motherboard.  I've not seen servers without db9 serial ports.)
