My goal is to keep this lab simple to manage and maintain. Thus, there will be no fancy features like scheduling, reservation, registering, etc. This is a casual quick and dirty lab, nothing grand or ambitious. I'm just sharing my home lab to the world.
All the access control is done by a Bash shell script I wrote, running in cron.
I use ser2net on Scientific Linux for the terminal server.
The lab cost probably around $1200 to build, including all 4 switches, the PC, the cabling, and GBIC's. Almost everything is used, except the crossover cables and USB-serial converters.
A little more info is on the blog. Let me know if you have any suggestions! Thanks!
