[SLUG] Video card that is actually a terminal server?

Hi folks.

Is there such a device as a "video card" that is actually a terminal 
server?  I.e., I can telnet/ssh into the console remotely and 
independently of the actual computer?  I have a server in the corner 
that I don't want to attach a screen to, but need to be able to see the 
bootup/shutdown sequence occasionally.

If so, what are they called, so I can start hunting one down?
