access server for console access

I know Cisco sells access servers, but is there a way to make a computer an access server for console access? 

Thanks

hi,to my knowledge, you can't

hi,

you can't physically make a PC an access server.

it's usually a dedicated appliance or a networking device with installed modules that makes an access server.

although virtually or in a GNS3 hybrid lab you could though, where you buy a USB hub and use a break out/Q-in-Q switch.

You can do it with a linux

You can do it with a linux machine, but it's more economical (money and admin time) to purchase a device instead.
