Well, the majority of replies were condusive to products by Cyclades
(  All of the responders mentioned that these products use
a stipped down Linux OS and handle the SSH quite well.  I have also included
other products below with the persons responsible for the replies....

We are currently using Lightwave 3200's and I was hoping to upgrade the
internal OS to support SSH.  I have contacted Lightwave but have not gotten
a response...I will further summarize when I do.

Many thanks!!!

Cyclades - All pretty much agreed that the Linux kernel supports SSH and
those who were using the product were very happy with it.

Mike DeMarco - Lightwave has a terminal server that can use SSH. It runs a
OS and you have to telnet to the box then connect to the host
terminal from there.

Paul LeMadeleine - I know that the new versions of the lightwave console
servers are SSH 
capable along with LDAP and NIS for authentication.  Check out

Jeff Kennedy - Yep, Lightwave now has a secure terminal server with ssh
built in.
We don't have these but we do have the older models and are happy with

Daron Barndon - The new versions of cisco IOS now support ssh (v1 I think -
not sure about

Kevin Graham - Load out a Cisco 3640 w/ 3 NM-32A's, 1 NM-1E (..or
equivalent, just
need to get an ether interface on it somehow) and IOS 12.2, and you'll
have a 96 port terminal server capable of a direct SSH to each line.

Mark Bergman - Yes. Yes.

The Cisco 32[46]0 series devices, with one IP card and up to 3x32 port async

cards make fine (if expensive) terminal servers. The IOS supports ssh, and I

believe you can get IPSec support as well.

Sid Wilroy - We purchased a couple of these Arula terminal
server. spin off from HP..
(Also has one for sell if anyone is interested, please contact him...HAHA)

Brian Catlin - ION makes one now that has the ssh v1 and 2 capabiliites.
Saw it demoed
about a month ago  (We have their sentry series term servers)
