Serial port console terminal FreeBSD & Solaris
Post date: Dec 24, 2013 1:54:51 PM
I know a lot of people who forget about the built-in tip command when trying to fire up a console session:
# tip -115200 /dev/cua0
Where -115200 is the speed/character rate and /dev/cua0 is the console port character device.
In tip, to exit/break out of the session, pres <enter>~. or if you are in a nested ssh session, <enter>~~.
No need to install minicom or the like.
