Need to setup a terminal that monitors serial port

Need to setup a terminal that monitors serial port

Post by John W. Hil » Sun, 01 Jun 1997 04:00:00

I am running Solaris 2.5 on a Sparc 5.  I would like to know if there is
any software available that will emulate an ansi terminal similar to that
of Terminal in Windows.  We have a microprocessor based data system that we
would like to attach to a serial port so that we can monitor it's boot
sequence which is ascii text.  Any help is greatly appreciated.


1. Using a serial terminal as a monitor port while running solaris 8 X86 ......

Hello All,

I use the serial terminal's (i.e. tty A) as my console for my Sun hardware
and it works great.  Now I have a project that is requiring us to x86 and my
lightwave console server 3200 doesn't work with the serial port on the
Compaq DL360 server running solaris 8 x86.

Has anyone ever had success setting up a serial port on a Intel based server
to act as the monitor while running x86?  I don't know if this will ever
work, since the serial port on the Intel server is probably not designed to
act as a video port, however, before I give up, I want to exhaust all

Please advise.
