Overview for SCS100/SCS200/SCS400

Remotely Access and Manage Network and Telecom Equipment for Optimum System Performance and Availability

With Lantronix secure console servers (SCS), system administrators can solve local and remote IT incidents quickly and save downtime and money. The compact form factors of the SCS100, SCS200, and SCS400 make them ideal for a variety of applications and save valuable space in your data center.

Secure Console Servers leverage your existing IPnetwork or a modem connection to provide remote access to data and voice equipment. Connect to the console or serial port (RS232, RS- 422/RS-485 – SCS200 only) on your equipment to manage hubs, switches, routers, servers, UPS systems, PBX systems, storage networking equipment, and telecom switches from anywhere in the world.

In-band management allows you to manage your equipment over the network from virtually any place you have access, by using familiar tools like Telnet or Secure Shell (SSH). Even if the network is down, Secure Console Servers provide Out-of-Band management with dial-in access through a modem connection. Modem sharing across multiple pieces of equipment provides significant savings in installation and monthly operating costs.

Robust Security

Secure Console Servers ensure the integrity of your equipment and data. Authentication limits access to authorized users only, using usernames and passwords, modem dialback, PAP/CHAP, Radius, Kerberos and SecurID. Authorization restricts access to equipment and services, based on stored user profiles. Secure Shell (SSH) safeguards login passwords and in-transit data through strong encryption.

Easy Access to All Types of Equipment

Managing remote equipment can be a challenge, especially when system configurations vary from location to location. For quick and direct access to your equipment, Lantronix Secure Console Servers feature a configurable menu system. Remote equipment can be selected from menus created with your own descriptions. For example, menus could be organized by equipment location and name or configured specifically for each user, limiting access to specific equipment.

Event Management Speeds Recovery

Event management features help you locate the source of equipment problems and diagnose them quickly. Each serial port can be independently configured to store console messages from attached equipment, and to alert an administrator of a potential problem by e-mail over the network or through an alternate modem connection. Upon receiving notification, administrators can review the stored console messages to determine the cause of the problem.

Simple Setup and Configuration

Three flexible configuration options make setup easy and quick. Configuration can be accomplished through a Command Line Interface (CLI) using a serial port or Telnet, a web-based GUI, or with the included EZWebCon® configuration utility.
