Boot-Serial

Serial console

If the NetManager has its serial port connected to another machine with a null-modem cable, this will allow the rest of the boot process to be controlled from a terminal program (such as Hyperterm or kermit) on that machine. This is useful for remotely fixing a machine that will not boot.

To switch to a serial console, use the Boot Menu or type consdev com0 at the bootloader prompt.

The usual serial port set up is:

  • 9600 baud
  • 8 data bits
  • no parity
  • 1 stop bit
  • Hardware flow control
