NBX100, COM Port Usage "What can be performed via this port"

NBX100, COM Port Usage "What can be performed via this port"

Hey Folks question... A question was posted to us about connecting the COM port of the NBX100 to the COM Port on our Servers for redundant login' capabliities. I'm still learning about these units.

But what all functions can be performed via the COM Port compared to logging in via the GUI interface (Web Portal).

Also what harm can potentially be done by us making a hard connection to the COM Port. I have some systems now that are alittle sensitve to having an idle modem connection on them and will lockup some even crash requiring a reboot to restore.

RE: NBX100, COM Port Usage "What can be performed via this port"

The com port should only be used for troubleshooting with 3Com support or for system recovery.
