    The biggest issue I had with some of them is that if the server is outputting more than 1024x768 resolution it'll make the unit instantly crash and reboot. It's possible they fixed it in the Duo units but wasn't in the single connector models.

    Francisco, the unit does not reboot, the java freezes, then when you go back to the browser to restart the java, the browser simply redirect to the login page again.

    yes, you are very right, I have ILO on my servers on the other DC, and works perfect and also uses Java only with the exception that you have to disable LTS1,2 and LTS1.1 and it works perfectly.

    @vpsrus how about the server you are connecting the lantronix to. I had a case when it can't mount the virtual media. It is a workstation PC, and also with some workstations (not a server grade hardware. The lantronix seems to be unstable, hang and disconnect often, and i have to console it and doing a reboot). I can't seem to troubleshoot what was the problem.

    Well since you don't own the lantronix itself, so we are guessing another factor. Could you please try to find out whether the router of the DC "tarpitting" your connection to the lantronix (try to do a ping to the lantronix device or doing some mtr to see its latency).

    The other thing I don't like with lantronix is if you haven't connected for some time (let say 3 or 4 days), it become hang (I can't see anything on the screen) and have to reboot (from the menu), and after that it was fine. It is just ridiculous if I have to reboot the device and wait for 5 minutes or so.

    Just to confirm, we have the SpiderDuo units and haven't seen this type of issue.

    Run a ping test, you might be surprised. Those units reboot fairly quick.

    Cool :) We moved away from using spiders once I realized how awesome IPMI's were.

    Yeah, same, but we do keep a few on hand for a few of our older servers with absolutely atrocious IPMI firmware (e.g., losing keyboard every two days) and the few colo customers we have.
