First, a copy of my original question:

!! I know this is not a high priority isssue, but I could not find an appropriate
!! newsgroup.
!! I need a terminal server to support at least 4 serial devices so to be safe
!! I'll look for an 8 port terminal server. I need to be able to telnet to
!! a port on the server from a host on the network, as well as (the usual)
!! of being able to telnet from a terminal on the server to a host.
!! I have not been watching this market for a while, what is currently on the
!! market that is good, simple to configure and no too expensive?
!! Don

I guess things don't change very quickly in this market as I got large number
of votes for Xylogics Annex terminal servers. I was told that the sun NTS
terminal server is simply a rebadged Annex. There was a tie for second
place between Xyplex and Lantronix. I got some honorable mentions for
Central Data SCSI servers, Livingston terminal servers, Allegro System
terminal servers, and Spider terminal servers (made by ?).
