    These are Telejet webresetter devices. They can perform hard-resets over the internet.

    Yes, we do use them for our automated dedicated server OS installer.

    This.

    They are by now, if you have any idea how to work with an RPi and one of the 16 port relais boards, expensive (RPI + board + cables = >50$, Telejet devices cost a lot more).

    You wire them between RST and ground to force reset and they can via USB emulator send certain key commands, but don't confuse it with any real KVM as there is no video back to the user (this is to eg. send CTRL+ALT+DEL).

    Hetzner uses them or a fork of these/custom design as well, they are fairly easy to cable and support a star network with nearly endless (128 per leg or so?) devices.

  • Hell, this seems like a perfect job for an Arduino. You can program the ATtiny device for input OR output, which already has plenty of OS documentation on using it as a TTL converter, and there are plenty of I/O channels on a basic atmega328p.. You could build one of these for about $7, and vamp off the computer's 5V rail or USB port.

    Just be careful how you wire it or every time the arduino gets power-cycled the connected device also gets powered off/reset.

    I had one that 2 of the I/O pins were directly wired to the power switch pins on a motherboard of a machine that tended to lock up, which was then connected via USB to another Linux machine, if I rebooted/powercyled the 2nd machine the one the arduino output was wired to usually went as well.

    That's an interesting design issue. I'd circumvent this by having it charge a small capacitor that eventually charges, and momentarily trips a relay to cause the device to reset.

    It was a board I didn't much care for and the arduino was cheap enough, I think it was directly wired to one of the output pins on the arduino and ground.

    a basic understanding of electronic concepts like open collector and pull-up resistors might help to avoid unwanted behaviour...

    If im not mistaken they are patented, most likely the reason nobody is building their own ones.

    There's nothing illegal about workalike devices, so long as you either create your own code, or, optionally, have a "white room" implementation where you can prove the existing software was designed to work similarly, and was not created by a reverse-engineered version of the original device. Unless, of course, China- then it's outright stolen IP, and good luck getting anything from a lawsuit there.

    Unless, of course, they somehow patented a user device which connects to the mainboard to perform a reset. The US patent office has allowed dumber shit than that before.

    Well, never seen another company apart from Telejet selling resetters :/

  • All I can assume is since it's not that expensive for a network switch to perform hard resets, and have a trivial console interface, that this isn't often sought for SOHO/medium businesses. Not even sure where I'd look for what they may have patented in Germany- and internationally.

    Maybe because this is a high niche market which would die out real soon™ (perhaps I'm wrong. Who knows)

    Pretty much. Before this device and actual usable KVMs, we had the PC Weasel.
