The RMS-8R4-CE Console Management Switch is the tool for economical Remote Network Management, which is available in Interworld Electronics .
The RMS-8R4-CE provides eight RS232 ports to access your equipments console ports, four power outlets to perform remote reboot or on/off control plus an internal modem with dial-back features for secure out-of-band access.
System administrators can access the RMS-8R4-CE via a HTTPS/SSL secure web browser, SSHv2 encrypted telnet, or out-of-band via the internal modem or the local terminal port.
The eight RS232 serial ports can be individually accessed by number, name or group. Each serial port can be separately configured using simple menu driven commands to set the port password, data rates, flow control and other operating parameters.
The full matrix capability of the RMS-8R4-CE allows you to easily connect any two ports on the switch.
The RMS-8R4-CE supports address-specific IP security masks prevent unauthorised access to command and configuration functions and two different levels of user security.
The supervisor level, which is intended for use by system managers and other administrators, provides complete access to all port functions, operating features and configuration menus.
The non-supervisor level is ideal for co-location applications, since users are only permitted to view status and connect to the ports allowed by their user name and password.
The buffer mode allows individual ports to capture and store incoming data, such as error and status messages received from attached console ports.
This snapshot of the last data received can be viewed, saved or erased by the system operator at any time.
Easy to use commands let you assign each of the four AC power outlets plug names and view plug status.
Outlets can be individually switched on, off or re-booted using plug numbers or names. For power sequencing, each plug can be assigned a power-up time and will wait for the selected duration before turning on the next plug.
The internal 33.6 Kbps modem provides secure dial-in capability. A password feature prevents unauthorised access to sensitive command functions.
Each menu-defined password can be assigned an individual user name for easy reference and an optional dial back number, which instructs the unit to call the user at a predefined number before allowing access.
