I'm trying to keep this cheap here! :-) 1RU is going to cost much more
Can you get an analog phone line? A modem hanging off the serial port
of the Dell in auto-answer mode without any intelligence on the part of
the Dell, or you could run mgetty/ppp.
I don't know of any 1RU product that's going to be cheap enough to
justify to most folks these days... when you can get Via C3 chipset
mini-computer type machines so cheap...
Something like that might be more useful than just a console box...?
I've seen some pretty small non-rack-mount cases for those.
That 1RU requirement hurts...
