How does a Terminal Server work?
In case you are not familiar with Terminal Servers, this document provides a quick overview of this important device (TS) and explains how you can benefit from having one in your Lab!
In general terms, a Terminal Server is a device that allows you to access multiple devices from a single point! That way you won’t have to keep switching Console cables to access each individual device.
Instead, you simply switch between Terminal Server Lines by pressing a special combination of keyboard keys: 'Ctrl+Shift+6' (all 3 keys at the same time) and then 'X'
