What I have here is some headless unix systems (linux,hpux,sco) and a W2K
desktop. The unix systems are headless (they do have a
text-terminal-console). I use the setup as on to access them.

Where none-PC-based hardware is involved, the console is on a serial

One exception, the Compaq based servers have a compaq RIB card. See the
compaq website for details. It offers a vnc-like service, however, much (10,
20) times slower due to the horible screen update. (and at an incredible

If you need headless, pc-based, M$windows-operated systems, you can use the
