Serial console server


(Simon Telephonics) #1

Does anyone have a recommendation for a serial terminal server (1 port) for remote access to a PBX console?

I have used an older version of this successfully, price is right

Thanks. It looks pretty basic. What do you use to connect to it, netcat? Or does it at least support telnet protocol? I would love something with a built in SSH server but now I know I am asking a lot.

I used the console port on the slave , straight through male to female, no dtr csr rts cts just rx tx and ground. The device set up as a TCP Server, On the controlling end I used kermit configured as a vt100 terminal client to that server.

How about a cheapo android tv box ( < $30), a usb to serial cable ( < $10) and termux (free)

You get SSH (and netflix) for about $40 :slight_smile:

I ended up ordering some AirConsole Minis (get-console.com) from New Zealand. :smile: I will report back once I have tested one out.

I appreciate the DIY approach too. Thanks for the suggestion.
