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'd already purchased the SpiderDuo from Lantronix which is reliant
upon a Java Webstart client (unfortunately) but works well:
Lantronix has some tools for enterprise management of the IP-KVMs.
Look at http://www.lantronix.com/it-management/management-platform/vslm.html
FYI: Most newish IPMI or IP-KVM have limited to full TLS/SSL and IPv6
support. Enable TLS/SSL to secure console access to your servers.
