I'm looking at an IP-KVM. I don't need anything high res as I only
need to see Linux consoles, BIOS, and RAID. What I am looking for:
Non-Java client that runs on Linux (or a WebUI that will deploy a
decent RDP or VNC session over SSL).
Decent/configurable key mappings (ie, I've had a KVM a while ago where
you had to pull down a menu for F-keys - not cool).
Decently priced dongles (say ~$100?)

I've never used this but saw it mentioned on a mailing list and wished
we hadn't already purchased something else:
http://us.adder.com/products/adderlink-ipeps  It uses the VNC protocol.

We have used a couple of the Adderlink devices and they work pretty
well. One model is kind of handy in that in addition to the IP/VNC
console, you can also connect a keyboard and monitor to it so you have a
"local" console as well. We have had success connecting the Adderlink to
standard KVM switches so we effectively have access to multiple consoles
through the one device.
