The LX-4048S is driven by the In-Reach Operating System (IROS), a Linux-based OS tuned for performance, security and reliability. With up to 48 ports available, In-Reach is designed to manage and control large data centers and clustered computing environments. In-Reach offers a secure remote site presence, with serial connectivity, console, power and alarm management capabilities contained in a single box. Internal modem options also are available in all port densities. All models use 32-bit RISC embedded processors.

The AlterPath ACS1 is a compact single-port console server used to connect serial devices to a TCP/IP network. Typical applications include branch office management, retail automation and IP enabling of legacy serial devices. Dual PCMCIA slots allow for enhanced functionality with support for many interface cards, such as Ethernet, modem (V.90, GSM, CDMA and ISDN) and wireless LAN. The ACS1 uses PowerPC dual CPUs to transfer data from a 10/100Base-T Ethernet interface to the RS-232/RS-485 serial interface and back, enabling communication between the serial device and the network. The ACS1 supports SSHv2 (Secure Shell) for security in data connections.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
