Manage remote serial consoles via TCP/IP
This program provides a convenient way to manage many remote serial consoles for machines. A server conserver8 runs on each server machine and it connects to the specified serial port. It can log, provide shared access to remote consoles, etc. If there are multiple machines running conserver8, a master conserver8 can be run to connect to all the slave servers, providing a single point of access to the entire cluster.
This is very handy for remote unattended FreeBSD servers. It can send serial break signals which is useful for breaking into DDB on hung machines.
