Isn't it cheaper, at this price range to get a motherboard with
built-in KVMOIP support? I know many Intel & SuperMicro server boards
offer this either on board, or as an added module. Even on the smaller
/ cheaper SuperMicro boards I could add KVMOIP support for about $40
per server. And, it doesn't takup any more space on the racks and has
much less clutter than those spiders
