If you use server.exe running on a PC motherboard (or port it to an embedded
controller of some sort), you can log on to the Thunderbolt and control it
from up to 8 different clients.  Depending on what the serial-to-Ethernet
converter box costs, that could either be cheaper or more expensive, I
suppose.  If the EPIA is no longer used for anything, perhaps you could
repurpose it as a server?
