By serial I assume you mean ASCII workstation controller?  We 
used to use these - thought it would be great for dial in.  It 
worked, but it was a little slow.

I think you are either stuck with it or trying to get a twinax 
controller card.

I don't suppose hardware from these old 400's that people are 
trying to give away would work, would it?  Maybe EBay?  Or, do 
you have a relationship with a good broker?

Subject:        Console(ation) sought !



Hopefully one of you hardware gurus can advise this software weenie on this.

Since my poor old (new actually) model 170 still does not have a consistently
working console I'm looking at alternatives.  I there a simple (read cheap)
hardware solution open to me that will give me a nice twinax console so that I
can sleep at night.  We are currently using the "old-style" serial console
support but every so often it dies (for reasons that I won't bore you with).  So
far we've been lucky and have still had our TCP/IP network running at the time
we needed the console.  Because of this we have been able to reset the console
and all has been well.  My fear is that one day the network will die and the
console will not come back to life by itself and then I've got a large black
veggie on my hands.
