The Lantronix ManageLinx solution aims to give businesses a secure and easy way to manage the various remote devices on their networks, and in many ways does just that. For enterprises looking to support remote servers or devices in branch offices, the ManageLinx tool offers a safe and simple solution. ManageLinx was relatively easy to set up and configure, and was able to support a variety of remote devices, from Windows and Linux workstations to various pieces of test equipment, and did so using disparate protocols, including Telnet, HTTP and HTTPS, to access the devices. However, there were some hurdles. The management GUI was at times confusing and also could be flaky occasionally. In addition, ManageLinx stumbled when trying to view streaming video. In the right situations, combining ManageLinx with other Lantronix products offers a comprehensive secure remote device management solution. By Matthew D. Sarrel
