How to STOP-A from 'tip hardwire' session

Question: I have a Sun box (Ultra 1) which I am using to 'tip hardwire' into an E4500. I watch extended diagnostics and then it starts to auto boot. I want to STOP-A so I can get to the OK prompt and then set the 'auto-boot?' variable to false, but when I hit STOP-A, it affects the local machine (Ultra1), not the E4500. Is there a key combo that I can use to send STOP-A (or something similar) to the E4500 instead of having it affect the local machine?

I know I can use HyperTerminal from a Windows box and CTRL+Break, but I would like to know how to do this from a Sun machine...

Thanks in advance!

Try this keypress: ~#
You also can end your tip session with: ~.
Or if you want al the tip commands: ~?

you need to map STOP-A to another key which sends the code of the STOP-A key in your tip session. Try using loadkeys.

filiep, your suggestions stops the local machine too.

ahoffman - filep's suggestion should work fine without stopping the local machine - I've never had a problem with this.

One more thing - check that breaks aren't disabled in /etc/default/kbd. See the file for more details.

I haven't been able to try this all day, but when I do, I will dole out the points to the first person with the right answer. Thank you everyone for your suggestions...

In answer to your question, ahoffmann, I am tip hardwired from an Ultra1 into an E4500 and I want to hit a key on the Ultra1 that will let the Ultra1 continue to run CDE, but will stop the E4500 from booting (auto-boot? was set to true) and get me to the OK prompt...

Again, thanks all!

exactly as I understood it.
As I said you need to remap any other key to the keycode sent by STOP-A in your shell on the E4500.
Probably you may also try to unmap the STOP-A on the Ultra, and then map it agin in the shell on th E4500. Not shure if this works (can't test myself).

ahoffman - this is fine - if you are tipped from the u1 to the e4500, and on the u1 press ~#, you will stop the e4500.

Perhaps this will work:
login on the E4500 as root
goto /usr/platform/sun4u/sbin (where sun4u is your platform name)
execute the eeprom utility :
./eeprom auto-boot?=false

Yes it has been a while. My apologies to all. I have been away. This solution worked for me. Thank you for your patience.
