We put in a 515 six months ago, we didn't get a dedicated card, we have 2
ethernet connections in T5 & T6, one for host IP and one for console IP.
Then we set up 3 LAN consoles on workstations using the Operations Console
included with iSeries Access for Windows.

console options for a 515 or 525
Please respond to
We are getting quotes for systems with either a 5552 (sys console - thin
console) or 5553 (sys console - Ethernet) cards.
Our old boxes had twinax consoles and we use a Visara (diskless linux
device) that serves the console session over the network. The Visara
client software (and emulation protocol) are proprietary but it's
acceptable for what it is.
What are the remote (TCP/IP) console options for a 515 or 525 ?
An HMC would probably work, but it's likely the most expensive option.
Our IBM partner is suggesting another twinax card. Are these really the
only choices ?
