Serial Console Access
Posted on 2004-04-30
Due to some changes at our hosting center Iam no longer guranteed an in-facility terminal which I used to connect to my sun boxes 420R and 250s The terminal had all the required setup for me to do the serial console access. My question is that since many newer laptops don't have a serial port and only an USB ports how does the serial console access console workout..
Earlier older laptops/pc's had a DB9 serial port and so to connect to any of the sun boxes all I needed was a Null modem and and DB25 to DB9 serial cable, I googled on DB25 to USB serial cables and I did come across few and so would that along with Null modem work out? What are the gotchas here?
