Networks which connect computers and peripherals within a relatively small area are called local area metworks, (LANs). A typical network includes a number of host computers, a number of workstations and other LAN compatible devices arranged in the proximity of each other for use in office automation, distributed data processing and other situations requiring connection to a common local communication medium. Terminal servers provide connection between terminals which operate asynchronously to transmit data to and receive data from the LAN. The use of remote terminal servers to view data and execute remote applications from connected local nodes has been a common application, particularly in the business sector. The terminal server also provides a node for connection to the LAN. Terminal server connections allow remote nodes to view the results of applications that are actually executed exclusively on a server. The LAN provides for packet data transmission between the terminal server and the host computer. In this way, communication is established between a number of terminals and host computers. Terminal server devices make remote logins, utilizing the TELNET and RLOGIN commands, available to users through a serial port without requiring the users to be logged onto a computer on the network.
