At work we have a lab setup, complete with serial console access to a variety of appliances. This console access was provided through an old console server, which was FULL of problems. The biggest thing was just a lack of connectivity. Since moving, we have replaced those old console servers and denied access to the lab to most peoiple, so this setup has been rendered unnecessary. But I have an old IP Appliance sitting at home, which I have been wanting to tinker with, and it has a serial console connector, and the computer I have set up does not. So now I am revisiting the RasPi Serial Client to get it going at home, and serve as a bit of a console server (even though there is only 1 serial connection). Read on to see how I went about accomplishing this.
