Cascading Conservers...

Does anyone have an example configuration for cascading Conservers? I have
a primary system with a large number of serial ports running Conserver,
but I also have a second system with just a few serial ports also running
Conserver. I remember in older versions of Conserver (pre 8.x) it was
possible to chain them, so if I requested a port from the primary server
that was actually on the secondary server, the primary server would
automatically redirect the console connection there. Is this still
possible? Thanks!

it works the same as before...the easiest way taking a conserver.cf file
and distributing it to all the conserver hosts. there's an example in
conserver.cf/samples/average-distributed.cf (which builds on others in
there). the only "trick" is to have the 'master' for each console
defined appropriately. you can almost take the two conserver.cf files
you have now and just cat them together and distribute that (in some
cases that'll "just work", for others not quite so - depends on how you
set things up).

That is so easy and intutive I missed it the first time I was trying to
figure this out! I just cat'd the 'default' and 'console' sections from
the secondary server's config onto the primary server's config and it just
worked! Actually, that is too easy. :) Thanks!
