Do you have the correct cable? you need a null-modem serial cable.. not a strait though.

Also, the default settings are:

19200 bits per second, 8 data bits, No parity bit, 1 stop bit (aka, 19200/8/N/1).

Read the man page to learn how to set these options..

My guess is, on OpenBSD anyway (Connected to COM1):
$ cu -l /dev/cua00 -s 19200

But I could be wrong.

Good guide for people new to Soekris installations

It was a new day yesterday, but it's an old day now.
