I agree with mzehner but i want to add this:

in the /etc/inittab file  use:
7:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty /dev/ttyS1 DT19200 wy60

So , have to set the speed and emulation according to the setup in the wy60 terminal. Also, in the terminal ( with shift+setup or shift+select ) go to the F4 page and set the speed, the parity,the stopbit and use xon-xoff.
F10 +right-arrow+F10 to save.
