I'm using my laptop and tip(1) as a serial terminal. This is working well when a machine is booted with the laptop connected to its serial port. However, I need to be able to connect the laptop to a machine which was booted without a serial console.
I've set the ttyd0 line in /etc/ttys and sigHUPed init. The machine is still not recognising the presence of the ``serial terminal'' - the getty(1) process on the server is not bound to a controlling terminal and nothing is appearing in the tip(1) screen on the laptop. I've also tried fiddling about with conscontrol, adding ttyd0 on the server - still no difference. Have I missed a trick somewhere, or do I really need to reboot the server to get it to recognise a PC connected as a serial terminal? (Connection is laptop - USB - BAFO 810 USB/serial adapter - null-modem cable - server) Jonathan _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
