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: -Dh 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 display. Would anyone enlighten me about this issue. Is the null modem cable's problems or something else? Thanks a lot!
