Thanks to all who responded.  The consensus of responder who use
Cyclades equipment is that it works very well, with the possible exception
of connectivity to Sun V880.  One user reported that reboots of the V880,
not other servers, could cause the terminal server to crash.  The Cyclades
recommended for its:
	ssh connectivity
	ability to have multiple connections to the same port (1 active,
others passive)
	controlled access to ports (with user accounts), and
	ability to send a "break" only when desired (programmable).

Other positive recommendations were from users with:
Cisco 2511 and 36[x]0
Aurora Technology's Control Tower 
HP Web Console
Perle (
Lightwave Inc product Console Server 3200
