I had to look it up... Here's what I have:
Basically, this box needs its own internet connection. You can ssh into
it. I think it has some sort of embedded Linux system.
Then the box has two serial port connectors -- this is a real rs-232
type interface, that most servers have, but hardly any desktops have
You plug the serial connector into the computer and that's it. Knock on
wood, I've never needed it, but I bought it for just this sort of thing.
My build-world is finally done, so going to see if it works, now...
