conserver-server - Serial console server daemon

License: BSD style
Vendor: Scientific Linux CERN,
Conserver is an application that allows multiple users to watch a
serial console at the same time.  It can log the data, allows users to
take write-access of a console (one at a time), and has a variety of
bells and whistles to accentuate that basic functionality.

This package differs from the DAG version in that it runs as a non-privileged
user and contains an extra script for IPMI integration, and sane config file

This is the server part that runs on the headnodes.
