Secure Serial Console Server

The SX is no longer available.  See Raritan's Next Generation Serial Console Server, the Dominion® SX II.

The Raritan Dominion SX serial console servers enable IT and networking professionals to access, monitor, and control all of their serial devices securely, anytime, from anywhere. They support a wide range of servers, routers, switches, and IT devices and are a cost-effective solution to increase security, reduce network downtime, and lower administration costs.

They are ideal for mobile operators, data centers, and branch offices that need remote out-of-band administration of Linux & UNIX servers, network equipment, security appliances, rack PDUs, and mobile/cellular infrastructure.

Port and Session Logging
