2 Gig USB Flash Drive for TFTP Server

Store local copies of router and switch configurations on the 2gig USB flash for disaster recovery. You can make backups of existing configurations before undertaking any changes so that if there is a problem, you can simply roll back the config.

Offline Logs

Store offline logs on a USB flash drive to provide an audit trail. Log both the serial ports and the available networks to provide syslog, keylogging and a .pcap file for Wireshark.

Pattern Match Alerting
Tripp Lite console servers can help you ensure uptime by proactively scanning the serial stream on the console ports for specific errors or phrases. Monitor the traffic on the serial port and watch for user defined patterns or phrases and send alerts via SMS text or email based on pattern match.

Hotkey Power on RPS/PDU
The console server effectively provides out of band access to a dead communications device that is locked up in a frozen condition. Using simple hotkeys via SSH or telnet lets you launch a power menu to check power status, power cycle and, turn the unit off or on. We have support for thousands of PDU/RPS units for both serial and SNMP connected units.

Unlike other console servers, we provide access to the Linux core including bash. This allows you to do customization, such as creating a proactive self-healing solution that cycles power on a router or switch on ping failure.

Out of Band
The built in modem offers dial-in, dial-back and failover. There is also support for a variety of 3G USB adapters for wireless out of band solutions.
