- port EIA232 Remote Access Server
IOLAN SCS console servers enable administrators to securely access remote serial console ports on equipment such as PBX, servers, routers, network storage equipment and security appliances through an IP network. Data management information is protected through standard encryption tools such as Secure Shell (SSH) and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). Access by authorized users is assured via authentication schemes such as RADIUS, TACACS+, LDAP, Kerberos, NIS and RSA Security’s SecurID tokens.
By using encryption technologies, an IOLAN can protect sensitive and confidential data from a serial device such as a credit card reader before being sent across a corporate Intranet or public Internet. For compatibility with peer encryption devices, all of the major encryption ciphers such as AES, 3DES, RC4, RC2 and CAST128 are fully supported.
The IOLAN SCS has built-in fault tolerant capabilities to ensure secure and reliable access for managing important mission critical equipment. Dual Ethernet interfaces on the IOLAN SCS provide a backup network path while dual AC power supply models ensure that console management is available even if the primary AC power source fails. For remote administrators that require access from home, on the road or in the event of a total network failure, an optional IOLAN V.92 modem card delivers a solid, integrated solution with direct phone line attachment via its onboard RJ11 jack.
With support for Next Generation IP (IPv6) the IOLAN range provides organizations with investment protection to meet this rapidly growing standard. Demand for IPv6, which is compatible with IPv4 addressing schemes, is driven by the need for more IP address. With the implementation and rollout of 3G cellular networks, a robust method is needed to handle the huge influx of new IP addressable devices on the Internet. In fact, the US Department of Defense has mandated that all equipment purchased from 2005 be IPv6 compatible with full implementation by 2008. In addition, all major Operating Systems such as Windows, Linux, Unix and Solaris, as well as routers, have built-in support for IPv6.
It is therefore important for end users and integrators to select networking equipment that incorporates the IPv6 standard. The IOLAN line with support for IPv6 already built in, is the best choice in serial to ethernet technology.
