Network Console on Acid
||The topic of this article may not meet Wikipedia's general notability guideline. (February 2011)|
The Network Console on Acid (NCA) connects a pseudo terminal to the consoles' virtual terminals (/dev/tty0, etc.) on Unix-like platforms, allowing an administrator to remotely log in and troubleshoot directly on the system console. It uses a version of OpenSSH that is modified so that one can connect securely to the server. Preferably 'nca' should be started very early in the OS' boot sequence, as so configured (according to the homepage) "It's the next best thing to a serial console for fixing boot-time problems remotely."
Network Console on Acid is released under the original BSD license.
