Terminal server under development for generic out of band console (serial access) support

To support a new vendor or model we only need to know and develop a few things.

  1. The kind of connectivity
  2. how to log in
  3. how to backup and restore a config
  4. prompt management
  5. error handling

This normally takes a developer one to five days to create a new module, depending on the vendor and the available expertise. Because of these high­-level vendor ­modules we support a wide range of model families and OS-versions per module. The vendor specific information is provided by the engineers themselves using netYCE’ templates.

The creation of a new vendor module is accessible for a customer, but normally this task is done by NetYCE at customer request. The Vendor Questionaire is leading in the creation of a new module.

Interface types per Vendor

Interface types are internally referenced using a vendor-independent type, the Port_class. Since each vendor uses various names for these interface types, the NetYCE vendor-modules translates these classes to the names used by the vendor.

The table below shows what mappings are currently in place for the supported vendors.
