Remotely Access and Manage Network and Telecom Equipment
for Optimum System Performance and Availability
With Lantronix ActiveLinx™ Secure Console Servers™ (SCS),
system administrators can solve local and remote IT incidents
quickly and save downtime and money. The compact form factors
of the SCS100, SCS200, and SCS400 make them ideal for a
variety of applications and save valuable space in your data center.
Secure Console Servers leverage your existing IP network or a
modem connection to provide remote access to data and voice
equipment. Connect to the console or serial port (RS232, RS422/RS-485 – SCS200 only) on your equipment to manage hubs,
switches, routers, servers, UPS systems, PBX systems, storage
networking equipment, and telecom switches from anywhere in
the world.
In-band management allows you to manage your equipment over
the network from virtually any place you have access, by using
familiar tools like Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH). Even if the
network is down, Secure Console Servers provide Out-of-Band
management with dial-in access through a modem connection.
Modem sharing across multiple pieces of equipment provides
significant savings in installation and monthly operating costs.
Robust Security
Secure Console Servers ensure the integrity of your equipment and data. Authentication limits access to authorized
users only, using usernames and passwords, modem dialback, PAP/CHAP, Radius, Kerberos and SecurID. Authorization
restricts access to equipment and services, based on stored
user profiles. Secure Shell (SSH) safeguards login passwords
and in-transit data through strong encryption.
Easy Access to All Types of Equipment
Managing remote equipment can be a challenge, especially
when system configurations vary from location to location.
For quick and direct access to your equipment, Lantronix
Secure Console Servers feature a configurable menu system.
Remote equipment can be selected from menus created
with your own descriptions. For example, menus could be
organized by equipment location and name or configured
specifically for each user, limiting access to specific equipment.
Event Management Speeds Recovery
Event management features help you locate the source of
equipment problems and diagnose them quickly. Each serial
port can be independently configured to store console
messages from attached equipment, and to alert an
administrator of a potential problem by e-mail over the
network or through an alternate modem connection. Upon
receiving notification, administrators can review the stored
console messages to determine the cause of the problem.
Simple Setup and Configuration
Three flexible configuration options make setup easy and
quick. Configuration can be accomplished through a
Command Line Interface (CLI) using a serial port or Telnet,
a web-based GUI, or with the included EZWebCon®
configuration utility.
ActiveLinx Secure Console Servers provide the necessary
tools to remotely manage the performance and availability
of critical business information systems, minimizing
downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity.
