Hello all,

I am trying to set up serial console for the first time and I am having some
troubles to make it work.
I bought a null modem cable and connected it to COM1 on two computers. One
is Windows XP,
and one is FreeBSD. I created "boot.config" file with the line:
When I rebooted the FreeBSD box, the dmesg was not shown anymore. I think it
wrote to serial
console already. Then I tried to connect to the FreeBSD box in WinXP by
using the HyperTerminal.
But nothing was displayed and I rebooted freebsd box again. Still nothing.
I think there are some problems with the HyperTerminal, so I installed
VMWare and install FreeBSD
in the WinXP and try to connect to my original FreeBSD box. But I still
cannot get anything from the
Would anyone enlighten me about this issue. Is the null modem cable's
problems or something else?
Thanks a lot!
