About this time last year I was using the Lantronix and Hughes/CMC
terminal Server. The Lantronix was advertised as able to do many
different type of connectivity, but I didn't like the support and
the performance and quality were not as good as the Hughes.
I had good field support and ROM upgrades.
The software which came with the Lantronix was buggy. Then
again it was trying to run on an AT&T 3B2 600G (oh my!).
