 Another alternative to headless machines...
Author: Philip 
Date:   18-12-01 21:02

I have a bunch of headless servers. What I did was hook one of them up with a monitor keyboard and then configure all the others to use the serial port as the console. Then just run a bunch of null modem serial cables from each machine to the one with the monitor/keyboard. When I want to get on the console of one I just swap cables around...

works pretty well for me.
