Hi

I used to laugh at rollover cables because ethernet was available.  Until I
needed to maintain my own stuff and determined it was easier to use the
rollover cable than lug around a monitor and keyboard.

So that being said is the best equipment to use to aggregate rollover
cables in a rack?  Anyone using something that is reliable?


I might be too young - is a rollover cable a console cable :-)?

Mark.
