http://www.rocketport.com/sales/specs/rack16.htm, with pictures available at
http://www.rocketport.com/sales/specs/rack16_foto.htm, will connect to any
BSD or Linux machine -- which your POP already ought to have.

ftp://ftp.vix.com/pub/vixie/rtty-4.0.shar.gz, when mixed with the above (or,
indeed, with any serial port on any posix-like system) will give you console
service including multiple simultaneous operators, audit logs, and so on.

disclaimer: neither i nor my employer derives any input from giving away rtty.
