Managing Serial Devices in a Networked Environment

The proliferation of network management technology in both hardware and software has provided the network manager with an extensive tool kit.

These serial-only devices may also require the network manager to implement costly and sometimes cumbersome workarounds to be included in the management scheme. This paper explores the technological advances in Device Server design that make it possible to manage serial-only devices over a network.
