The 500-CS looks interesting.

It's like the old Xylogics Annex Servers? I.e. some TCPIP port for the lan, and then 16 serial ports?

So we can hook up say 4 terminals to 4 serial ports, and say 8 hosts to 8 other ports- and you can mux the terminals to any of the other async ports? And also use the LAN to telnet into the 500 and then connect to a host?

Do you have serial cables for it?

Actually buying the Lantronix or Xylogics is the easy part- getting 20 serial cables that connect is the hard part :)
