    1313Get a linux laptop with a serial port.  Connect the Soekris serial port to it using a crossover serial cable.  There are a lot of these, unused, floating around ORBIT.  They have "X OVER" written on them.

    15 Run minicom in a terminal window that can handle vt102 (any of them can).  Minicom should be set for 9600 baud, 8 databits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control.  Turn hardware flow control off in minicom.  The UNIX device for talking to the console is almost certainly /dev/ttyS0.
     15Run minicom in a terminal window that can handle vt102 (any of them can).  Minicom should be set for 19200 baud, 8 databits, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control.  Turn hardware flow control off in minicom.  The UNIX device for talking to the console is almost certainly /dev/ttyS0 or /dev/ttyUSB0.  Because the console baud may be set to 9600, you may need to try different values.

    1717Minicom and the Soekris console driver seem a little fragile.  If you do wind up dumping junk to the serial port (as will be the case if you run pppd carelessly), you may gum it up so badly that you need to reboot.
