In the demanding world of Systems Administration, the challenge has been to integrate full-featured, reliable console management solutions. The SCS480R Secure Console Server from Logical Solutions answers this challenge with solid reliability features such as dual hot-swappable power supplies and redundant access through dual console and network ports. The SCS480R can provide access and management of any combination of serial devices; servers, routers, workstations, LAN/WAN devices, and more.  The SCS480R is a high performance console port management solution incorporating OpenSSH for secure authentication and encryption, and support for DHCP networks. The administrator assigns each user's access rights. Users can then connect to only the devices they are authorized to access.  When access to network devices is key the SCS480R provides management of serial console ports directly through the network or from a local terminal. Remote access is achieved via SSH, PPP, or through an external modem. The access flexibility of the SCS480R makes it perfectly suited to management of remote server installations.  The SCS480R provides a 256K true FIFO buffer for each device port, providing a 400+ screen audit trail to assist with diagnostics should an attached device fail. By allowing access to original panic messages, problems can be quickly corrected and downtime reduced. The SCS480R is fault-tolerant and will not cause attached devices to fail should the secure console server lose power. The design of the SCS480R provides isolation between the user terminal and the server or device, eliminating the terminal as a point of failure.
