Oh yeah, that's the one… $470.. Now I remember why I didn't buy one when I first saw it…

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 started looking at the Raritan devices (which can be found really
cheap on ebay) but I only see a Java client and no mention of
installing a client on Linux.


Related -- kinda.

A while back someone used to sell a cable / thingie that would allow you to use your laptop as a keyboard and 
monitor. Basically it had a VGA / HDMI and PS/2 port on one side, and a USB port on the other -- you'd plug the USB 
into your laptop (and run some client) and the VGA / PS/2 into a server, machine, whatever. Whatever the server sent 
would show up on the laptop -- basically this means you can avoid having a crash cart. I've done a crappy job of 
explaining it, but does anyone know what I'm on about? Who made this? It is still available?
